Mermaid and her alter ego fish by MartaNael Mermaid and her alter ego fish by MartaNael
:iconaaaahplz: WANNA BUY THIS AT A TERRIFIC QUALITY PRINT FOR JUST 10€ AND AS BIG AS 60X90cm OR AS A CALENDAR? GO HERE: MIS POSTERS. Easy to use and reliable site with shipping worldwide and you can trust them!! :)




So, a girl I recently met told me she wanted me to paint a mermaid and my boss agreed, so here it is :3 I tried not to make it too similar to the topic and cliche. She's supposed to be the fish as well, some kind of alter ego. I wanted to make her a little bit mysterious and with a yellow glow under her face as if she's hiding something.

Painted in about 48 hours (6 days of work) in Photoshop CS4. It was reaaaaaaaaally time-consuming since it's a huge canvas (6500x10000px at 300dpi).

Background is some kind of blurry matte painting.

Umm.. I'm starting to miss my digital impressionism!

Eh...yeah...wow, I'm missing any other words. Just...wow.
The only point I got is that the colours could be a bit more intense, but I'm not sure if that's really needed :)
