NOA - by DanLuVisiArt NOA - by DanLuVisiArt
Hey guys, updating this with a more detailed crop. Really fell in love with the comp of this one so decided to change it over to the original :)

Here is one of the main characters of that sci fi book I was telling you about. I wanted to create kind of a deep sea/tropical fish/mixed with some type of native of this aquatic planet. I fell in love with the hair idea, as if it was a fish tail..and the rest just came form that.


As for the story she came from, the more I think about it, the less I want to do it. The story is starting to share too many similiarities with some big sci fi movies coming out this year and next, so I want to keep it as fresh as possibile.


But I got a better idea for it...

Done last year in PS CS 4 in about three days..

This is my absolute favorite work of art on here! Time & time again I search for this photo just to have it in my photo collection when any of my devices mess up and loose everything.

Wow, this is so neat! :) It really reminds me of one of the spiderwick mermaids, because of tropical fish type of elements and stuff. LOVE the hair. and also the tiny dotted details, so pretty.

Beautiful colors, gorgeous facial structure!
And there's just something about that nose that I really like. Love the tiny shimmering details you've added as well.

But I do have one concern; if she's an aquatic being, what purpose would eyebrows and eyelashes serve? Or is she amphibious?
