A Long Way From Home

A lone kirirn runs away from home and soon finds himself lost in a strange swamp ruled by an eccentric merman. A bit of shouen ai undertones implied but not too many I think.

Submitted via phone since my home internet is down. Will update as soon as I can.

EDIT
Added a larger sized image so now you can see the details a bit better.

While I was working this picture my 3 year old nephew Gabe was watching me color, got all hyper and asked why the merman had blood on his hands. I told him it was scales and he just stared at me. Then I told him it was gloves and he said "oh' then walked away looking bored. I guess blood was more exciting for him lol.

Lol I'm trying to break the 4 finger habit on some of my drawings. His braids are pretty long though. Guess it goes along with his eccentric behavior.

Amazing vividness. Though the characters are great, it's the surroundings which really grab me. Those curious lights couple with that water and the sky. It really is a fantasy setting. :)

Thank you very much, I really appreciate you saying that. I usually add the background as an afterthought but I had an idea for it in mind when I started and it pretty much came out as I envisioned it. It helps to enhance the image but not take all the focus away from the characters.
Plus I love adding fireflies to my night images. ^^
