SO. I ended up putting off TRADITIONAL practice AGAIN to finish this :XD: I plan on doing some brush and ink work soon.... i just.... not doing it.

anyways, I think i spent about maybe 8 hours on this. I think it's one of my best so far. I am happy with how this came out actually. she's a mermaid :) who found a sad dying fish. Sad Truth of life is we either eat or get eaten but we all gonna die!

I have another WIP of a dragon warrior based on the portrait of a family member that will be finished soon. But... tomorrow... or later :D

This is definitely one of your best!

Wonderful colour choices, the blue shadows balance out the warm lights and tones really lovely. And speaking of, the warm lighting is gorgeous, especially on her face.

Her expression is so natural too, and the anatomy's great, I love that shoulder!

Beautiful piece Meagan :heart:

thanks :) I'm really happy with it. It's a little smooth to my liking. I like some harder lines and edges, but I haven't mastered softness or texture yet. Hopefully I can combine them more! I'd like to learn how to use mixer brush in photoshop but it's odd to me XD

Yea, I concur that this is a beautiful piece of work. The colors are amazing and her expression is so strong. You hit a mark with this, I can't say how, but it's just very lovely. Thought provoking even without your description.

yay :) i do see progress. It's the new milestone. Softer tones and fading. Eventually i'll try to add back that rough texture, too.

Cool looking markings on her neck and cheeks!  Her fingerwebbing looks pretty awesome, too!  Would've been neat to see her fingers spread a bit more.
