Mermaid by NathanRosario Mermaid by NathanRosario
This painting is based on a sketch I made about a month earlier. Lately I've been doing paintings straight up in Photoshop without a line drawing underneath and using one layer (or as few as possible). Why? you ask... no real reason. I'm enjoying the process and I'm doing work faster this way.
C+C is always welcome.

Edit: Made some changes to the lighting and sky in order to bring more focus on the mermaid and add to the mood.

Aweseome!  Thanks for remembering that canon mermaids were malevolent and deadly!

Thank GOD I found this!

I was getting so tired of all of the same types of "pretty" mermaid stuff....
This is FANTASTIC! I love the fact that you went with a more scary tone with it...Much more like true myths, where mermaids were seen as beautiful, yet also seen as scary, deadly creatures....
This is so great!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the gills! Nice touch!
So nice....KEEP IT UP!
