Love the colors. If you turned it so the pruple was up it would resemble a palm tree. It's fun to see what comes out of those filters and blend modes. Looks like what you see in an art gallery.

The only thing missing from your second work of art to make it worth millions is the signature. P-I-C-A-S-S-O
The first one reminds me of a scene in Star Wars. Looks great.

i hunted down my little dancing tree, here enclosed.

nothing fancy but it was fun. bkgrnd layer blue
hill layer with pen and purple fill
noise to both of those layers
moon one big airbrush circle with features painted on
tree drawn on separate layer, skewed for the leaning ones, redrawn for the jumping one, noise to bark
gradient layer for moon light
flattened each position, i think there were four, and animated in image ready.

someday i'd like to make it dance to song of same name. someday. takes a while on my computer before he starts dancing, maybe not on fast ones.

I love the dancing tree, Kathleen. It's not just the technique that makes it good, there is such a wonderful feeling about it, like it goes with a story. (I hope that makes sense).

why thank you, sharon. what a nice thing to say. i'm sure a (childhood and adult) love of fairy tales plays a big part. i originally had the moon smiling only when the tree jumped, but it was too jerky. thought about making his smile get bigger each frame, never got a round tuit.

*All* very nice! Wish I had that kind of talent . But I can make smilies.

Kathleen,
The title "moondance" rings a bell. Didn't someone have a picture of a girl dancing that used that title? Or maybe it was something similar. Very cool.

Ed
