Well yes since the time that I was waiting for them, I curse British and French postmen, not knowing which one to curse >:( lol lol
I chose a simple and fast painting scheme and I hope that it is suitable :D

Very nice, the waterfall effect like others have said is good, may need to borrow it myself!

Excellent, I like the little fishes/creatures swimming around. ;D

1) From what I hear, Customs on both sides can be added to the cursing....

2) Looks decidedly suitable to ME!

Also, upon seeing the beasties in the pool, all thought of dangerous qualities disappeared. Until I remembered 'extremophiles', of course.  lol

For all the teasing, only one emoticon remains apropos.  :-*

I have to agree, that looks lovely, excellent work there duhamel.

Now I have in mind a Martian life-form that spawns in pools of mineralised water, then as the young reach adulthood they leave and become great flying skate/ray things. Perhaps the mineral in the pool is even Cavorite or something else that provides lift - hence the pool being an important resource that everyone is trying to find and control? Maybe that's just me...

Blue water on Mars because of minerals? Eminently believable.  Here in North America, mountain lake water is often aqua colored due to suspended rock dust.


Wonderful terrain piece. Love the little Martian sting rays in that glorious blue water.

I was talking aloud to myself. A habit of the old: they choose the wisest person present to speak to; the long explanations needed by the young are wearying.
