(ENG) This is the thrid piece I work for the great Gazukull. First it was Alia, then Jessenia and now the beautiful Ariella, all them from the Dead Tide series, an original project of Gazukull, composed by comics, visual novels and now, games! 

Coming back to Ariella, she was born as a mermaid but then was cursed and lost her tail and become human, so she joined to Jessenia’s crew on her galley. This has made her live amazing aventures and start a relationship with Gibonotik, an skeleton. At this the moment, you can see Ariella and Gibonotik’s skull taking a rest of Jessenia’s biddings, on a nice sunny day with her favorite book, which she can’t leave for a second.

(SPA) Esta es la tercera imagen que trabajo para el genial Gazukull. Primero fue Alia, luego Jessenia y ahora la preciosa Ariella, todas ellas de la serie Dead Tide, un proyecto original de Gazukull, compuesto por comics, novelas gráficas y ahora, juegos! 

Volviendo a Ariella, ella nació como una sirena pero luego fue maldecida y perdió su cola para convertirse en humana, así que se ha unido a la tripulación de Jessenia en su galera. Esto la ha hecho vivir increibles aventuras y comenzar una relación con Gibonotik, un esqueleto. En este momento, podéis ver a Ariella y a la calavera de Gibonotik tomando un descanso de los recados de Jessenia, en un agradable día soleado con su libro favorito, del que no puede despegarse ni un segundo.

Thank you! I think this is one of the most interesting characters I've worked lately, the character's owner made it awesome when he created her biography, I inspired my description on it.

I always enjoy the effect of light falling through trees onto the subject matter. It’s something I haven’t had the guts to try in my own work. I am a little confused about the color of the hair. Is the blue meant to be reflected light or the color of the hair itself? The contrast of color is striking. Regardless, excellent work as usual.

Thanks! I'm really glad that you like this artwork! The light through branches is something I haven't worked too much before, it isn't easy but it certainly looks nice. My suggestion is that you start doing some practices, even with black & white, this way you can focus only on the part you're interested on practicing.
About the hair, it has the two colors in this artwork. She's mainly red-haired, but often wears green highlights.
