This is a very interesting concept that you portrayed perfectly. It's not easy to come up with something like that and portray it so effortlessly as you did. I especially like your style for the hands and the water. It looks real but stylistic at the same time. You did a great job on the shading as well. Congrats on the DD, you most certainly deserve it. And good thing you didn't give up on it! It was worth the perseverance!
