Primary I'm working on commissioned detailed illustration so it wasn't looking good for me to participate on this event... But I got idea right after it was published and when I finished the sketch (by strategy few lines here and there), I was so eager to finish it to colors :blush: I couldn't decide which of my horses I should pick so I used all nagians I have :D As fish for inspiration I picked betta, that elegancy is just magical (or deadly :D yep, I know nothing about fish, just what google told me - we might be glad that there is only one male :D). 
Oh my, mermaids are fun to draw/paint, I really should finish all needed and try the mermay challenge :heart:

Ty barvy, jak jen se ti podařilo získat tak náramné barvy a barevné přechody! Moc se mi líbí jak jsi vymalovala tu dívku. Takové detaily a ještě k tomu na A5 formátu! Jsi v tom fakt dobrá :D

Ooh, děkuji ti! :blush: Detaily byly nutností - v daném termínu bych větší nikdy nestíhala :D a já jsem občas nimra, co maluje třema chlupama, protože pořád má pocit, že tam toho není dost :D Hold mi zase vůbec nejde to kouzelné "pár tahů a je to jako živý".
Za barvičky jsem vděčná svým vodovkám - dostala jsem všechny odstíny co vyrábí, takže jsem nemusela tolik míchat a tak si uchovají pěkně zářivé odstíny ^^

třema chlupama! xD Hele jentak dál, to s těmi několika tahy určitě přijde časem, a mám dojem že už teď se k tomu dost blížíš, ačkoliv to asi nejlíp můžeš posoudit jen ty sama. Moc se mi líbí i ta tvoje druhá entry - sunbathing mermaid. Barvičky ti moc přeju a těším se na další ^^
