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.
Just amazing I love It !
Fantastic pose! Her flowing garment and hair are outstanding, and the aquatic touches like the finned ears and webbed hands look great, too.
It all looks very realistic, but dreamy too. Adept paintwork!
Wow! It's so pretty! I love the idea!
Gorgeous image & your painting is outstanding!!
Wow, that coral looks amazing, I love all the detail .
Great piece. Good contrast, colors and a steady hand... keep it up...
Thanks! This painting took me a really long time, but I'm considering doing a whole series of sea nymphs and mermaids saving pirates!
What a beautiful painting! The figures are amazing and the sea life turned out great!
