This tutorial is one of the best I have seen on Deviant Art for a long time. The tutorial is easy to understand and follow and requires minimum knowledge to create a beautiful under water effect. As well as being easy to use the tutorial leaves room for improvement and experimenting so any budding graphic designer can place there own mark on the piece.

The tutorial could have how ever gone into more detail in regard shading and color management. Also the effects added after the tutorial ends would have greatly helped if they where explained. This would have left people being able actually to create the image posted rather than leaving a key segment not explained.
What do you think?

Can you post new links for stocks? Optional sky and Water links are broken. :/

Unfortunately not. Seeing this was not a commercial project, I didn't really care about buying stock images to create it and now there is little to be done regarding the stock images. I'd suggest you look for similar images to compose the scene if you will be doing the step by step of the tut.

Tks for the interest and I hope you manage your way around this issue :-)

You got fav from me ;) like this tutorial and effects like this. Can you explain me how you sharpen your images? When i'm zooming it 400% i can see nice sharpen and difference, when i look photo on 100% zoom i don't see changes. It's cool.

Great Tut. I would like to see more of the...

 Ill just quote Peanut-Designs "The tutorial could have how ever gone into more detail in regard shading and color management. Also the effects added after the tutorial ends would have greatly helped if they where explained. This would have left people being able actually to create the image posted rather than leaving a key segment not explained."

Appart from that, great and thanks for taking your time to do it;)
