i just saw that your image is 1.5 GB and it has 200 + layers.
you cannot do this on the interner.

you should flatten the image, make sure it is in 8 bits format and in sRGB profile.

this must be the reason i can't see your image, it's only an empty gray space.

Yeah I meant the original file is 1,5 Gb, but in the end I flatten it. Deviant Art wouldn't accept 1,5 GB files anyway (I think the max is 32 mo). As of why you only see a gray space, this is really wierd I hope it dosen't do it to everyone.

And about the sRGB profile, thanks! I just tried it and the colors are way better that way.
