This piece is beautifully done, and so very devious! I mean like very very very devious.
I really get the impact of the wavy, blurry heat from the sun, especially from far away. It is a bit blurry but I think that maybe just maybe, you did it like that on purpose. It gives the artwork more feel.
I really like the way you did the shading as it is ever so realistic and very effective to this particular piece of work. I would love to see more work like this from you! Keep up the good work, NikalaTheUnicorn!
