NEVER. AGAIN... I hate backgrounds so so so much. TT TT

I thought of "Under the Sea" as a possible title, but it reminded me too much of The Little Mermaid. XD

Okay, so this time I wanted to beef up my coloring some more, so instead I used SAI for everything. I just used Photoshop for some last-minute touches and for things I didn't know how to do in SAI.

I kinda skimmed a bunch of coloring tutorials and looked at some pictures for refs.

I did reach a personal best for the amount of layers used! I had about 60, this time. ^^

I started drawing this in my sketchbook and was really surprised how it came out looking anatomically correct (at least for the most part). It's weird, because I'm terrible at both anatomy and perspective, but this came out okay. o_o

I had no idea what I was drawing when I started (and that's usually how it starts). I had a head, then just kind of started drawing limbs and body parts and it ended up looking awkward...I thought, what the heck can I do with this weirdo body position?

...And then I realized it--Swimming. :D

So there it is. I wasn't keeping track of time, but I do know that I spent hours on it. And it's not even a cover...

I suck at drawing fishies, btw. lol

Anyway, if you don't mind, I would really love some feedback because I worked really hard on this. :3

This is Very Cute! :D Nothing about this pic looks awkard or unporportional <~think I spelled that right.) I can see your own personal anime/ manga style in there and I love it. <3 So great work, I can really tell that you put a lot of time into this. (Btw- the fish is actually cute and I love the pink hair)

I believe the correct word is 'disproportionate'. *is a grammar-nazi* XD

I'm so glad you like it. Thank you for telling me what you thought! :3

No problem. And thank you for the grammar lesson. Lol, :) It was needed.
