I painted this for the 2nd Annual Erotic Signature Book. The subject matter is a little tame. It took me a while to paint, on and off for over a month, I used a lot of reference material for all the coral and sea life and posed my husband and myself for the characters. In the end, I'm pretty happy. I used Painter 9 for the majority of this artwork and depicted the hair in Photoshop. I noticed that importing this piece back and forth has caused some posterization (especially in the dark areas). I don't know if this is a common problem.
