 I bought this print at the Salvation Army for $2.  It came in a frame, but I'd already thrown it away.  I just loved the fish.  

Before:

And After:
http://www.geekking.com/gallery/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=2650&g2_serialNumber=2

I added the fish to a different background for the water, then added in smaller fish, some plant life, and some air bubbles for each of the larger fish.  I also recolored the fish stripes so they were all silver instead of purplish and blue and whatnot.  
This was a really fun project!

Yes, actually I did.  I also made the full fish raised a bit, which doesn't show up in the photograph. 
Thanks!  Cheesy

Smiley I never thought of black fish being scary.  That's cool though!  I had tons of fun adding in the scenery at the bottom.  It was all premade stickers, so I just had to decide how to lay them down.  Way fun!  Thanks so much!
