Smells like fish. by depingo Smells like fish. by depingo
First finished painting of 2010! (though time-wise most of this was done last year)

I just love underwater creatures! To me they are so scary and out of this world...

My main motivation when I started this was to do something very detailed. I got carried on and forgot about that, but I guess it kinda worked out.

I've long-loved this and I don't think I've ever taken the time to comment here. A truly superlative portrait. Subtle details really make this: her hints of scales, translucent webbing, coloration in the skin, and tender features. Thank you so much for sharing this image with the world!

she looks somewhat like a very pretty famous actress...and since I'm terrible with names I won't remember it... Did you happen to get any reference? If not, you're epic with female faces, she's just gorgeous either way ! Though I'd really rather not go into the fish vs. girl funny conotations of a mermaid or whatever manner of female human like creature that this might lead too LOL

that being said, so going into my favs o/

She has a great face! Those eyes. The fact that you created it all from imagination is mind boggling.
I also really like the webbed fingers. I've never seen anything like that.

& you used really nice colors for this. So yeah, this kind of kicks ass.

I love underwater creatures too, although I rarely draw them because I've yet to master underwater effects. Your translucent fins and ears are beautiful, and that webbed hand is amazing. Thanks for sharing such a gorgeous piece of art (as is the rest of your gallery).
