This was a gift for a friend of mine. Started as practice, trying to use more digital painting to finish a sketch rather than dodge/burn it to death.

Pencil Drawing on standard 200gsm sketch paper edited and painted in Photoshop CS6.

Wow she's fantastic yet I feel probably dangerous. I love the placement of the gills and am really glad to see them as it makes her less like a woman with a fish tail suit on and more like a creature all of its own

Thanks. I normally place them under the ribcage as it's nore anatomically accurate but in this case as you said I needed to add something of interest to make her seem more creature.

I agree with that. I know some people put them on the neck but I thought those would be too small maybe. She's like a ray this way, sort of

Yeah normally gills on most fish are right behind the head, which in some more cartoony designs can work because the head is drawn larger.

Yeah so they don't just look like strange and slightly unsettling cuts in the side of the neck...

Wow! All those fins look fantastic!!  Are those gills on her back? If so...that's cool...never seen any like that before!  I would hope that as exotic as you've made her, she'd have webbed hands, too ;)

The gills were an afterthought to be honest. I usually put them under the ribcage, but in this I just sought to fill space. ;P
