This is not my lineart! It's the wonderful Xaotl's, found here ([link]
I love her art, especially her pencil art, and since I wanted to practice my coloring a bit, she was generous enough to give me the go-ahead to pick something from her gallery.
I'm not sure why I chose this. There's just something innocent in the character's face, a childish honesty in his emotions. Also obviously he's a unique sort of fellow, and I figured, y'know, I've never tried my hand at sea monster-people before. Or the tide. Yeah, that made me tear my hair out a little.
Anyway, I colored this in a shockingly short amount of time, and that was with trying a couple of new things, so I'm pleased. I hope Xaotl is pleased as well.
