WHOHOO!! This was definitely a challenge! It is my first one:) I definitely enjoy the freedom of surrealism...I used Photoshop to create my piece. Let me know what you think;) Thanks a lot and good luck to everyone!!

Good effort, I would recommend trying to blend greater contrasts of color around the objects to give them more of a 3 dimensional feel because they seem a bit flat. I think the fish are very cool.

It’s such a weird tree creature. Good luck to you!

The image looks flat because it was painted that way. The rendering of your shapes does not suggest volume or depth. Your texturing is flat e.g. the water texture is generally the same size and tone throughout suggesting a flat plane perpendicular to the viewer’s line of sight--same with the tree. This has a folk art flat perspective feel.
