Your work here is stunning, I can not wait to have time to look though you gallery. I love the light scale detail on the skin. I try to make that effect when I draw(with pencil) and it never works out quite right. The fish look amazing as well, I love the bits of bight color you have going around there.
It's all amazing.

I really like the detail put on the mermaid and the fish. I just think that the background could have been paid more attention to. It would literally look as though it were a photo taken underwater that way.

Ohh the haiiiirrr Q.Q how did you do that?? I'm struggling like a psycho person practicing coloring hair
Anw, that is fabulous! and the color looks awesome

:iconviccolatte:
Viccolatte Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Comes with practice I guess. But that's the answer everyone hates haha so I'll just say what I did: started of with blocking in the colors with a soft brush, adding details on top with a small brush. I think I went in with an overlay layer to add some nice color effects too. Was so long since I painted this I don't remember clearly... A good tutorial for hair if you're struggling with it is Linda Bergkvists hair tutorial. If you don't already know about it, check it out, it'll definitely help you:)
