Not only is the pre-work impressive, but the detail in Rainbow's End by ~externalmind is astounding. There is something to discover in every little corner. Small yard gardens, a swan by the watermill, a little river bridge, a round tinted glass window on the house.. What makes its completeness is the sunflowers in the foreground taking two extremities of perspective from that and all the way to the tiny birds swimming in the farthest lake. It almost gives you a feeling of being there in person, touching the sunflower leaves, taking in the view. ( Suggested by feainne and Featured by IreneLangholm )

The making of this image is now being featured (among some my other works) in an official tutorial book being published through Adobe Press/Peachpit/Pearson! Check it out if you have an interest in creating works like this of your own! :-)
