Mermaid Digital Painting

Alright so this last project was really something. I learned a lot. I got a lot of feedback and help from my friend Norman for which I was very grateful. I hope that everyone else enjoys the final look as much as I do. I am going to start with the final product and move backwards.

This is the final version. I am pleased with how the little details came together.

This was when it was mostly done. Though at this point the hair color was not quite working.

This was the first color lay-in. I was trying to quickly get the color idea across before I focused more on solidifying my ideas. I also moved the eye a bit at this point as in the sketch it looked a little off.

This was a more solid drawing from the sketch that I based the main form off of. Although these lines were not the final lines used.

And this was the original sketch that I posted before.

This was a really great journey. I had a fun time working on this piece and I can say that it is definitely one of my best so far. I'm excited to start working on something new.


  1. It's lookin' awesome! It has come a long ways, nice work, I think I need to do stuff like this more.

  2. You are amazingly talented and it is really fun to view the process of this particular drawing. Thank you so much for sharing!
