Contest entry for :iconcuteartistunite:
Won 2nd Place!
Manga Artistic Challenge #1 Winners!

My mermaid is based off of Baby Blue Eyes (nemophilia menziesii), the blue and white variety.
I chose them because I once saw a picture of a field of the blue variety and they looked like the ocean. The white variety actually blooms on sea cliffs. :eager: I thought it was a perfect flower to use~!

I was in such a hurry to finish this. ;u;
Thank you, dodoman1er for picking her hair color~! ;)

You're welcome! 

I watched your video. :) I just love your way with blending. Watching you color those cliffs and the sky was awesome! 

Did you use acrylic for the plants on the cliff?

Amazing Nasika!!! *^*
Your drawings always come to amaze me! Especially the colors you use and the way you color so nicely!
How do you color skies and water like that?! ;3;
Oh my, you even draw birds so perfectly! >o<

LOTS of references. XD

I also took a Natural History class, so I got to know bird anatomy pretty well, so once I saw a picture, I could pick up on the important features much easier and play with the poses a bit more.
These are very generalized birds though. :lol:

Never be afraid to try something new, pretty much. :)

I want to touch this back up since the contest is over and fix some of the things I don't like after the winners are announced. XD I think it might make a good artwork to sell prints of at convention once I do. People really like my first mermaid picture after all. I can't sell that one, but maybe this will do the trick. :nod:

I based her fin off of that popular flowering material pattern
thumbs3.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/…
and tried to make it look like the Baby Blue Eyes instead of roses. Guess I've still got to work on that. ^^; But, oh well! I think it's pretty nonetheless. :D
Thank you!! :glomp:

I think it was very nice as well.
After all, always is cool to do something different in each new drawing.
And I forgot to mention that the sky with light reflections was better than good. ^^
