Pettin Da Fish by mynti Pettin Da Fish by mynti
Okay, so if I were a water nymph or deep sea mermaid, I'd totally have a pet fish. And I'd pet it!

So here we have a loose painting I started a long time ago... I should detail it out more but, ah well, I wanted to finish it and get it out of my to-do list. I had a lot of fun here anyhow :D

Info:

Adobe Photoshop CS3 + Wacom Intuos 3
About 15 hours, give or take a few.

Thanks for lookin! :heart:

Edit: Jan 10th... I think I'll detail this out more, I'm thinking about the feedback you guys are giving. :D Thanks for the constructive crit!

Edit: Jan 14th: A sneak peek of my detailing is here: [link]
Edit: Feb 10th: Here's a WIP update on my blog. [link]

Gorgeous.
A true mermaiden, not the cliché-ed blonde-blue-eyes. Love it.

Stunning! Congrats on the DD. Your creativity shines through here in the differences from all of the usual mermaid pics. I love her hand! While it could almost have an "ick" factor you have painted it with such gorgeous "draping" and colors that it becomes beautiful and unique. Your attention to detail is exquisite. :heart: This one may finish out my walls for a while. (I'm pretty much outta room!)

(I too am guilty of fish petting. They are too pretty not to!)
