Veiled Curiosity

For this illustration, I wanted to design a water sprite creature. It was difficult deciding whether to give her more insect or fish like features. In my initial sketches, she was a bipedal creature with human legs and butterfly wings. She needed to be more aquatic, however, since she lives in the marshy area surrounding a pond. I decided to go with more of a flying fish type creature with large “wing like” fin appendages, so she can survive both in and out of water.

Your skills in shading and light effects are amazing! I also love to use soft shading, but I try to create that effect with watercolors.
