Desert Oasis by AlvinHew Desert Oasis by AlvinHew
I've always found the idea of a desert oasis appealing. The concept of a nourishing pool of life-giving water located right in the middle of a nigh unlivable environment of scorching sand is a juxtaposition that I like a lot.

Ahh this is an excellent piece! I love the technique you used to color it, it makes the rocks look really textured and the water so refreshing~ <3

I know this is going to sound like a weird question, but would you possibly allow me to use this image as a non-profit website banner? I'd be sure to credit you, and even have a link back to this page if you wanted!

Sure, I'm always happy to let people use my art for non profit projects as long as they credit me. Don't forget to link me your site so I can see it! =)

Also, sorry for the late response.

This looks really nice :-) Are you influenced by Avatar?

I would not consider either the movie Avatar or the cartoon series Avatar a big influence on my work, no. But I do love the cartoon series very much. And I have yet to see the movie (blasphemy, I know, sorry).

lol, yeah, I meant the series. This picture just reminded me of it a little. You should be creating the backgrounds for the next one ;-) :D

Btw, "The Last Airbender" was horrible. Don't waste your time or money trying to see it. "Avatar" was great though :-)

Yeah I heard nothing by terrible things about The Last Airbender. I chose not to see it because I could tell from the trailer that it wasn't going to be very good.

lol, lucky you. I, of course, was utterly fooled. :P The acting was terrible and the story progressed way too fast. I mean, I understand they were trying to fit 20 episodes of a season into one two-hour movie, but still -_- Although, the scene where Zhao dies was pretty cool. :D
