ixiblix Commision by thereseldavis ixiblix Commision by thereseldavis
:iconixiblix: won my positivity contest and she requested a mermaid....so here is her mermaid. ;) I hope she likes.

Photoshop 20 hours

Sorry, there will be no prints made of this...she has requested that I do not make prints of this piece public, since it is of her OC character.

Negative Critism is discouraged.

I think this is really fantastically done. The skin coloring looks great and I can't get over how complicated you did that hair! It's awesome. There's a lot of fluidity in the motion of it too, which is really striking. Great work!

:iconthereseldavis:
thereseldavis Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, I was really trying for more motion and a more dynamic look. :D I am glad you think it works! Really, the hair just looks complicated due to the line art having lots of lines....the coloring was actually quite simple. :D

CandyBones666 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007
Yeah but you must have a really steady hand to draw those lines so well (and close together ^^;).

:iconthereseldavis:
thereseldavis Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Actually I use two different pens...one at 03 and 05...that way I can just add the smaller lines after the big ones....However I was surprised at how steady they looked...normally they are not so steady...must have been the lack of caffine in me at the time. ;)

O_O ooooooh, well i have no monies right now, but i'm sure as hell going to put you on the first spot XD.

short Q, how much d'ya charge for the full coloured thing? i'll know how much to scrounge up then ^^
Reply
:iconthereseldavis:
thereseldavis Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Around $60 for a full color...depending on how detail it gets....like it if has a really complicated background it would be more. I really do try and work with your budget, so it is definetly up for discussion. ;)

hmmm, well i'll start saving then ^^
seeing as buisness is slow ( true, i mean WHO BIKES DURING WINTER) it won't be for a while..

Only crazy people bike during winter. I used to live in Montana and everyone does things out in the snow because that is what the weather usually is there. I thought they were all crazy...now I live in Indiana and I think they have a very healthy perspective on snow...stay the heck out of it! lol.

still, if you still do such things during the snow, you'll

A. break a stuffload of bones, as tends to happen when high-speed wheels hit ice
B. become tough as nails

XD
