Mermaid Reef

This painting was request by a friend of mine at work. She asked for a mermaid for her daughter as a Christmas present. So, I tried to go for a Disney vibe with some elements of the ocean mixed in. For example, her hair resembles the design of a jellyfish.

It took me a couple days to figure out the best design for this pic. I used several layers to get the shading and light of the background just right. Overall, I’m happy with how this painting turned out.

On another note, I’m not sure if I’ll be taking requests just yet, but I’ll be sure to post on here and my deviant art account if I plan to. 

Until then, Happy New Year’s! 

Spring Time

A calm forest path in the middle of spring.

I painted this for my grandmother a while back for her birthday. Her favorite season is spring. She loves the the colors and how beautiful everthing is. So I decided to make a pic about spring time here at home.

For this pic, I wanted the trees to be the focus. They are very colorful in the spring. I used ArtRage to make this like a painting. There are atleast 15 or more layers used in this pic. I focused on using only basic painting tools, not fill tools or selection tools. It took me several hours. I’m pretty happy on how it turned out.

Hope you had  a happy birthday, grandma!
