Flying High by havefaith3x Flying High by havefaith3x
*** This is available as a print here -> [link] ***


Every time I used to go back to school, I felt like I was flying high and on top of the world. I liked to look at it as a positive thing, that's why these balloons are high in the sky.

My design was inspired by a wallpaper that I really like made by a fellow deviant. I can no longer find the old file, otherwise I would link to it.

Used [link] and [link] as reference ONLY.

Everything else is hand drawn in photoshop.

Full size file is available, just ask. :)

Edit: Changed bottom clouds to match the others better. Much more fluffy.

Edit 2: Due to this statement in the rules "...must be the exclusive original work of the entrant and made for the Contest...", I removed the background texture which was not mine, and I also removed the swirly lines that I had used from a brush and instead made my own. Also, I made my own clouds because I had used a brush for that too. So basically I just removed everything that is not mine. lol

Edit 3: Changed clouds again by photo manipulating some of my own photos.



EDIT 4: :la: EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I'm a semi-finalist!!! I can't even believe it!! :dance:

Awesome :D I really like how you had the color of the balloons outside of the lines, not many people would have thought of that! The colored strings draw your eyes from left to right to them :D very nice concept! Good luck to you and the rest of us semi-finalists!
