the effect you have going on is really cool. i like the use of bright colours. where the figures meet there is the whisp effect like the ones you see in cartoons which is cool! the ocntrast between the light of the sky and figures and the dark grass goes well. overall this is an amazing piece. nice choice of pictures

If you're crediting artists, you really should leave links back to them :)
Not sure whout the colours, they appear a little too saturated, but you've added some nice effects!

I would have left links but I don't have the links anymore and they were from some free stock site anyway so.....:iconidgafplz:

Very cool. I really like the colour scheme, the purple and greens clash perfectly. Very cool piece.

Fencing with magics, it seems. What world are they battling over, to see destroyed or to keep alive?

You did a pretty good job on this, I think! I see one of the fencers has a watermark on them, was that intentional? (Either to show the stock site or something, I mean.)

Actually, the watermark thing was a result of laziness. I really need to correct that.
Anyway, thanks for the compliment :). As for story, it is open to interpretation(I just thought the idea would be cool seeing as fencing is so dull.)

Aha, okay. ^^ Which one was that site? I sometimes get poses to reference from shutterstock.com

Ah yes, shutterstock. Where the only thing free, is for you to see.
I've been there

What was the one you used on this picture? (And no joke. It's a good thing I only draw from the picture, cause there's no way I could afford their prices. @o; )

um, no, but I visited there. And I sprinted away afterwards as fast as I could with my tail between my legs.

Seeing as i'm a hobbyist, there's no way I'm paying for stock photos to use for fun.

Same. :nod: Hence I just look at them...what's the site that's free to use? I'd love to change sites, there's no way I can pay for the things.

Very interesting. I really have not seen something like this done before. I haven't worked that much with Photomanipulations
