There are blue snails irl, though,
,
although the blue in this one looks edited to me. I'm going to assume by photo Dennis meant the blue color and possibly more filtering of the image.

hehe nope


Changin' one cluster of color is a rather weak application of the power of "photomanipulation" but ehhhh alright.
Always associated it with stuff more like this:

( un-edited source photo for Blue Snail ) There is not much manipulation aside from recoloring/reshading and some spot removal.

Another One ( un-edited source photo for Spiritual Snail )

The snail pics are cool, though. The shallow depth of field and close macro-ness of the small plants makes the shots feel alien, not to mention the interesting coloring.

I did this today.   I haven't done much with 'traditional art' stuff for a very long time.  In fact probably been several years if not more.  But I was feeling like having a go today and bought a couple pencils today and took a shot.    Chose one of my favourite singers Johnny Cash cos he has an interesting face and you can go slightly wonky and it still looks 'right' (as opposed to trying to draw some bland somewhat symmetrical supermodel type).   Anyways it's a bit messy and I'm clearly out of practice but I think it's at least recognisable as Cash.
