Lunar Rain Animation by `devildoll. A beautifully striking image made even more serene by the mystical rainfall upon the water. Even without the rainfall, there is this force which drives you to want to explore the image even more. A beautiful photomanipulation with an interesting tweak to make it just that more eye catching ;) ( Suggested by silentfuneral and Featured by Gashu-Monsata )
Just...Wow - Phenominal!

The background is just simply stunning! Good use of tools!

I also like the relflection in the water - without care, it colour look tackey - But here, it is done to perfection, demonstrating a lot of skill!

The animation as just...mindblowing.

The ripples in the water look soo real, and...real!

I am in awe of this picture - Its beautiful and has its own character! The rain does not look like its been added it - it looks like it belongs to the picture, which i find amazing!

I have seen lots of animations, but none like this! This is a one of a kind - Good Job!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
18 out of 140 deviants thought this was fair.

While a good idea on paper, this work falls apart due to the fact that the animation was made with a free program [link] with some pre-made script, with no attention to the end result.

It looks separated, the background and the animation do not merge at all.

Especially unsettling is the rain jerking up, due to the loop not working properly, and the ripples being too big and not enough for that amount of rain - both aspects could've easily been fixed if the artist had tried to do this themselves instead of letting it to the program.

Animations are not something to take lightly, loops are one of the most important aspects, a bad loop can ruin hours of work.

The background itself gives a soothing atmosphere, it is certainly better without the wonky animation on top of it - and since it is actually thing the artist "made" themselves, it is the only thing that can actually be critiqued.

This is a very average photo manip. Several trees are repeated and can be spotted very easily, if not instantly, one should always use that extra time into either editing some trees or finding more, so that none would repeat.

The color scheme offers purely blue-metallic, it would've worked much better with just a little touch of another color, such as purple or even a very faint red.

The idea itself - a moon with a starry sky, trees in almost pure black, is a very repeated idea, but this image still has that little touch that makes it "unique", that being the "water" that is below the trees.

This should not discourage you or anybody else, for every piece you make means the next one will be better.

Remember - pay attention to your loops, never stick to only one color, and make sure no items are repeated.
