MerMisty by ZaidaCrescent MerMisty by ZaidaCrescent
EDIT: I took Timeslider's advice on a few points that needed addressing: sig has been adjusted, sea-snow has been added, and Misty has been enhanced slightly to help him stand out a bit. :3
Playing with curves is fuuuuuun.

The original idea for this piece was a little different; I wound up altering several parts of this as I went along. In any case, I’ve had this done for a little while now, but I wanted to make sure it was finished in time for KitKat’s birthday, just in case I didn't finish the other stuff.

But go figure, I'm out of cyan ink so I couldn't give her a print of it... :ohnoes:

I hope you like it, KitKat!

Thanks for the visit! Comments are appreciated, but please don’t critique this particular deviation.
I’m aware there are errors. I still might make some changes to the painting. We’ll see. :D

Oh a blue mer! Very pretty, wild hair. And topped with a bunch of cute fishies! Loves fishies!

I love fishies too... It's too bad they make me so hungry, though. :/
Otherwise I'd invest in an aquarium, let me tell you...

lol! I hear you there, oh yes!

You should draw that aquarium! That way you can say you
have it, and are less likely to eat the poor things. lol!

You put critique not desired so I figured you didn't want one but here goes:).

The one thing that bugs me is your name stands out too much. If it was smaller or if you lowered the opacity it would make it better.

Also, this doesn't seen as refined as your last mer-picture. I realize that you might be keeping it less refined because s/he under water and it's murky but I think it would be nice to see the main figure crisp and sharp and have all the other little fish remain the same (a bit fuzzy). Study some underwater photos if you haven't. I'd be nice to see little floating partials like in Finding Nemo.

:ohnoes: YOU VILE SHATTERER OF RULES, YOU!!

I'm kidding. XD

Admittedly, this one was the most "rushed" of the mer-pictures I've done to date. I'll go back and make some adjustments, especially with the sig. I didn't realize just how...well, beacon-y it was until I'd uploaded it. (And was subsequently too lazy to go back just to fix that... ^^; )
Also, I hadn't thought of adding sea-snow. Thanks for that idea; I'll most likely use it in either this one when I edit it a bit, or definitely in future undersea paintings.
