Finally got out of my little tomb and finished one of my drawings. Well .. finished means I did the sketch, not the whole painting. /trololo
So. What happens when you start drawing a mermaid? You end with a beautiful long haired mermaid? Well. Not me:
It's like you start with "Hey, I'm going to draw a horse" and end up with a turtle.
But a nice turtle. I was actually working on a mermaid, cause I like their tails. Or however they're called .. flipper thing. But she was too human to me and I tried something different. So I ended up with a naga/myrmidone/siren. I know they have a lot of names, I know them as naga. And not just from WoW or Dota 2.
So first thoughts: No hair. Different eyes (holy crap ) and a long beautiful tai... flipper thing. And a lot of fishy stuff like bubbles and s.o.
I didn't want to over-detail her, so I tried to keep my craziness under controll. It was hard not to put her on some pipes or made her tail in robot style. But I resisted the seduction pretty well. Phew. But I miss sci-fi a lot ..
Most frustrating part was the face, especially the eyes. Cause I tried non human and non comic styled ones. Got the idea of snake eyes, cause they look pretty good on nagas too. But she looks kinda like Rayquaza. Some nerds will know what I mean, but I don't care. I like Rayquaza too. Sounds like a pretty good name for her, naga-ish. Still looking for a good one, have so many ideas.
I kept the head free of details, cause I had so many on body, background things and stuff that it might killed her or the whole image. And maybe because I got really confused with the whole picture and thought I should stop, had to remove many layers and lines for the final.
Next sketch is going to be male. Too many females here .. even if they're more beautiful for me then males but still .. I can try.
Short entry ends here.
