So here is the finished piece that I've been working on since yesterday over LiveStream! For anyone who's not aware, I am also a part time professional mermaid performer and therefore am a HUGE mermaid fan! This was an image I had bouncing around in my head that I finally decided to sit down and finish! WOO!
Painted in Photoshop CS5. Some photos were used for study so I could paint the corals, sponges, and other plants. My husband helped pick out the plants that would go into it. Everything else was pulled from my imagination.
This image was featured in the November 2012 issue of ImagineFX.
This is a remake of an old painting ([link]). It is also my entry for the "Draw This Again" competition I'm really happy with the new painting, although i wish i had more time to work on it... but so many deadlines... i... can't... *faints*
