This is really awesome! I do have one question. How did you get that filter/effect in your image to add those strong vibrant colors all over the image? I've seen other artists use it before and I'd like to try it out myself.
That is chromatic aberration normaly this is a photo distortion and doesn't happen in real life. But it looks awesome and in some cases gives a bit of movement. You can draw it in, magenta or green lines (very saturated)at places of high contrast between light and dark edges or you can use the lens correction tool in the filter gallery. This will do the trick but like any other filter you might wanna do it on a copied layer so you can erase parts you don't like or where it doesn't fit. I'm making a tutorial in wich i will explain how to do this in a better way, this tutorial can be won in my contest [link] I would love for you to join and see what you come up with ^^
Hey man, thanks for getting back to me about that! I'll definitely try that out myself and see what works. I really appreciate it and I have a solid month to enter your contest so definitely expect something from me

The image reminds me of a Courage The Cowardly Dog episode when there were space squids that made stars. Maybe this was where they were born! Excellent composition water-wise and beautiful imagery. Very well done once again!
I like the concept of this one, the jellyfish is really well done! if I have a comment to make, you should maybe use sharper brushes to highlight the things you want the eye to focus on - the eye won't focus on what is too blurry. You have to attract it by contrasts, sharp lines, etc ^^ you already added nice details on the jellyfish but it still seems a bit blurry to me, same thing for the waves close to us. But still, very good job!
Thanks for the critique, i found it to be very usefull. Specialy the water in the front could have used some more detail and specialy highlights. Fantastic that you have put so much effort in these features and critiques, thank you very much
