I am participating in this year's MerMay challenge! For each day in the month of May, I will paint/sketch a merperson. I'm a day behind currently (I didn't paint the day I went to see Shen Yun), but I'll be catching up shortly! As long as I have 31 by May 31st, I should be good.

Is anyone else participating in the challenge?

MerMay - Day 8
First off, I must thank the amazing Marcus Ranum for providing such beautiful stock photography for me to study. 

I was so extremely disappointed with "Day 7", which actually took four days, that I decided I needed to try something a little different. The composition for this one may not be as strong as I'd like, but overall I'm pleased with the work on her values (especially facial) and also the workflow I followed. Everything I've made since I started using Krita has had wildly different workflows from one another, as I struggle to find something comfortable. At last, I believe I've reached that level.

I'm not sure how much longer I'll be working without color this month, but it does make it far easier to focus on other aspects.

MerMay - Day 7
Ahh, two mermen in love.

I had a very hard time with this one, and it's definitely a case of too long being spent on something that's not working. One day I would like to repaint it, but I spent the better part of last week working on this "speedpaint". But six hours, a speedpaint is not.

MerMay - Day 6
Day 6! This is officially the longest that I have stuck with this kind of challenge before. I'm still really trying to push my values and composition. Overall, I think this one came out pretty kick-butt. The only thing is I'm not a fan of how the cave just barely kisses the edges of the canvas. I should have either cut out the sides of the cave or made the side-walls a little thicker. Also, more breast physics! (and more tails that feel flat... >.> )

MerMay - Day 5
Okay, so I slightly failed on the composition with this one... though otherwise I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. I worked on this one while my dear fiance was playing Horizon: Zero Dawn next to me, so I was a little distracted. >.>
