I am quite proud of this one. :meow: It was originally just the sand and sky, but it wasn't enough. I tried a camel, a pyramid, and a palm tree, but none of them worked. :shakefist: At least something ended up fitting. :XD:

:bulletorange: Done in PS CS4 - approximately 45 min

I thought a program called Terragen might interest you. You can make landscapes with it. I use it sometimes, but I'm still learning. If you'd ever like to use one of my landscapes for a manipulation, I'd be happy to let you.

I've heard of it but never tried it. It really does appeal to me.

And thank you so much for the offer. :hug: I'll definitely keep that in mind.

... Alright, I'm going poetic on this one. I'm sorry. I shall fill this comment page with my romanticism and if you don't like it, you can delete it :P.

In case you feel like deleting it though, I'm letting you know in advance - I like this deviant. I'm just using it for visual prose but lack both the patience to get permission and the time to rewrite what I've written.

The immortal sahara... the omnipresent sahara... the ethereal sahara... the graveyard of the explorers, the sahara

Many have venture by this desert - great armies in search of glory; traders in search of a merchant shop; travelers in search of the new world; the religious, in search of The Lord's presence... The Sahara...

The Normad speaks of this strait of land in awe and reverence, the power and ambience striking his heart with a yearning for his own self-consciousness. Many brave the odds and venture against this harsh master, earning admiration - some, in the process, become feared and revered. The Sahara

It is where legend and reality intertwine. It is where humanity has stopped progressing. It is where our very notions and the sheer fabric of time stops... The Sahara

And even as the wind passes the hurricanes through to the wanderer, it only cements the repute of the Sahara. The Saharan myths speak of the army of Moburk al-Rajoun, who ventured into the heart of darkness of a sandstorm believing that the only way to dismantle the 'demon' was to conquer it with the will of God and the swords of truth. Whether such a 'demon' had ever existed, or if such a band of marauders had committed themselves into brandishing arms and riding into the sunset during a sandstorm, no one knows, but the myth remains etched... in The Sahara

And now, Oh Sahara, I bid thee farewelll... Till we meet again, I bid thee farewell. Grant the Normad safe passage; Protect the Pilgrim; Grant Sanctuary to the honorable shoulder; and relentlessly pursue the traveler, keeping them at bay.

Amen
