I so want to draw a walrus mermaid now.

Ah, dang it. I never posted my lobster mermaid, did I?

#55 kind of reminds me of the 40s and 50s.

@djizomdjinn: Omfg. I want to see that lobster mermaid lol!

something over the weekend. I think i've done too many studies and not enough application, cos I really have trouble "finalizing" the look of a painting and I'm not sure why. CnC always welcome. 8)

edits: don't mind me, the colors always come out different so I'm swapping out versions to the one closest to my ps display :/

58.

I always love how you pull off grass. In addition to everything else, that is.

Can't really pin down what material that cloak is supposed to be though.

lobster mermaid (boobies):

Fun fact: While doing research on lobsters I found out they're cannibalistic. I have this potential idea for a painting that's totally not safe for PK. And it's gross enough that I kind of don't want to think about it.

Really, really dig the coloring in this one. The cloak looks like fine fur to me. The costume design is spot on, too.
This whole painting is just nggghhh

@djinn: oo. smexy. :P That tail just grows so seamlessly.

Yea, let's leave that idea alone there....

It's supposed to be fur, but I think I know where the texturing was too ambiguous. :/ Hm. Will update soon.

@Joe: Thanks joe! I fussed over the colors quite a bit so glad it works, hahah.

Started this last weekend... was trying out some stuff, still wip. Am going to move on soon because I'm not happy with the design of the lighting and the staging is really meh. all the same CnC very welcome.

Wow. Both colors and lighting are great.

63:

One thing though, the wings feel kind of thick and leathery when I think they should look more like silky cardstock... I'm not very good at articulating this, am I? I hope you get what I mean.

Razor thin highlights, and getting rid of a little bit of that lighting spill-off maybe?

@muzz: haha thanks ^^

@dizom: Thanks! Hmm, I think I get what you mean. Do you mean like this?



64. Two evenings' work. Trying to tighten my pictures a bit more. But man that lighting is so not realistic. Trying to reconcile my observation work with my imagination work, not easy. -n-

Petty nun is really not happy about posing for this long

Also, how did you get that sexy, sexy texture on the upper edge of the cloak?
Basically, how do you do the things, and can I do it, too?
