This design was part of an in house game project we pitched to production companies. I designed five different races this was the aquatic one.

A neat and very original aquatic humanoid. I like how you gave her a two-pronged weapon instead of the obvious trident. You've also dodged the obvious mermaid and gill-man features.

Thanks, this is part of a larger image that I'm still working on, I really liked how she turned out.

My first thought upon seeing this...run.

This is only part of the image, wait 'till you see what she's running from!

You're killing me with anticipation!

Yeah I should finish that image off, it was really close to finished. I'll have a look at it over the weekend for you :)

Everything about this is brilliant!

Thank you! It was one of those paintings that kinda just happened.

Let's hope you'll keep getting more of it :D what medium did you use for it?
filbarlow's avatar
It was from a series of paintings that I did entirely in Photoshop and it was the first time that I had worked that way. Usually I sketch stuff up and scan it in.

Oh wow, I really like this creature's garb, especially that bit on the shoulder. :D

Also.... love the fishy-dreadlocks. :giggle: And the whole head, really. :D

Yeah it just fell into place, we pitched it to Disney for a while but they wanted me to take the fin off, I didn't like that version.
Contraltissimo's avatar
The dorsal fin, really? :O_o: Good heavens, why? Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't seem like there are a lot of humanoid-fishy-type people designed with a dorsal fin included---I thought it was a nice unique touch! :D
filbarlow's avatar
I completely agree with you :)
