I've just posted on my DA the WIP of the coloring part :3

Here you can see it: click me!

You can read all the description on DA , but I copy and paste it as well:

Quote: Well, the idea is pretty old, and the initial sketch is totally different XD If you're a MiniTokyo member, you can see all the "transformation" in these topics: 1 2 3

Now I started to color it. I decide to use a different tecnique of coloring, so for the first time I tried to color all in monochrome, and then I'll add colours.

At the moment I'm working on her arms' bracelets; the right one was placed in a wrong position in the lineart, so I'm trying to put it in the right place now :)

Suggestions and comments are welcome!

EDIT 13/05: really few free time -.- I had to change a little the anotomy because I noticed some mistakes. This is a closet screenshoot of the first one, just to focus on her face :3 I like how she turned out with this cute expression

EDIT 14/05: I went ahead with jewelries and I started to do some colours :3

EDIT 20/05: tail finished

EDIT 27/05: finally I finished all the mermaid @_@ Now, let's start with the background! ù.ù

EDIT 16/07: actually I started the background the same day that I finished the mermaid, but I didn't edit this deviation anymore...gommene! However...the project is going ahead, really slowly, but it is going at least ... june was a terrible busy mounth unfortunally -.-

EDIT 19/07: finished details on the two big buildings @_______@

EDIT 21/07: finished all buildings and made some base light effects, just in order to have an idea about how it should be...

there's no other phrase to use, but oh my ! I rather like this piece already and the rest of the "click me" links are quite remarkable. in my opinion, I would color the background in both light and dark shades, it will give the mermaid more of an depth and brightness to her. I really like this piece and can't wait to see the finished work. as this is your piece, I know for a fact that you'll do things to it which will make it that much more better, sure that was bad grammar there, but this piece deserves it ! hope to see it soon !

BuBbLeS!

ooooh! :D Raffa began to color her great piece of art! xD it's going greatly as I see :3 I like the color you used xD and you seem to do well even with a new technique of coloring! :D so, hmm... if you wish to keep the colors as they are now, the background should be dark.. (not too dark! :P) and then, it should be brighter around the mermaid xD and there's some light diffused there... so she'd really be the main focus.. and the colors of the background should be more pale than the colors of the mermaid... what do you think? :3
ah, I searched some images and this illustrates my idea of the light behind the mermaid x) y'know, that ray of light.. =S but it shouldn't be that bright or it'd look odd ^^'
so.. that's my little phantasm on this wall *____* but I know whatever you'll do, it'll be just GREAT! xD
Gambatte Raffa~! ♥

Thanks mirtillo :D

Just edited the deviantART submission with a new screenshoot!
Actually I didn't made BIG progresses, but I had to edit some part of marmeid anatomy and in the meanwhile I changed her face, too XP
But I like the final expression that I got...what do you think? :3

Cancel

her eyes are so luminous *_* iris is realistic (it's a great thing, imo), and excellent work onto lips, seems that she used lip gloss. Lovable the pink-ish cheeks. She's coming out adorable ^o^

The lips killed me at the beginning >.> But I'm happy that they turned out good :3
Anyway, I edited again the image XD I was "ispired" yesterday, so I worked until late in night @_@

This Update pleases me! ANOTHER!
....Random aside, I like where this is going, the painting is beautiful. I also can see that my initial presumptions of the colour scheme (bright and tropical, blue sea, colourful fish) looks less likely to happen; are you going more for a murkier atmosphere then? Say, more like this ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ) as opposed to this ( 1 , 2 ) ? ^-^

I like her expression as it is, though it looks slightly less mischievous than in your sketch xD Ganba~

Did you have issues with lips? So, double kudos o.o I mean, it doesn't seem, seeing the great result.

I like the latest changes, the combination red hair+green eyes is so 'azzeccato' (I don't know how the hell translate it, luckly we speak the same language ^^). Love the details onto arms jewels *.*

@ao: thanks! :D However, the final idea is to have a tropical and bright atmosphere :) Don't look at the colours now..I'm only tasting them, and the background colour won't be that grey-blue for sure!

@mirtillo: aahahahahah XD I don't know how we can translate, too XD thanks again!

ANYWAY EDIT AGAIN :) I'm going very slow because I have really few free time, or if I have it, I'm too much tired to draw...I hope I'll finish it before the end of this month...-.-

that's how time is, thus far it's going along at a fantastic rate, besides rushing things tend to make things seem rushed or gives the illusion that it just looks awful or sometimes unfinished. take your time, from your previous works I just know this one will be no exception to turning out good. I await to see it uploaded here and shared with the rest of the mt class :) but look on the bright side, you wait a few more months it can be a summer piece ! and mermaids are shiner in the summer anyways ;)

BuBbLeS!

Pearls onto her hair are amazing *___* I also like how you colored the tail, and the texture like fish scales perfectly works on it, imo.

I LOVE Gimp ù.ù I always used it since I started made graphic/drawings on pc, and I don't have any problems with it :)
Plus, I'm using the old version...the new one it would be much better than this, but I'll download it after finishing this work :)

However, another small update! I really hope I'll finish this wall before the end of this month ç_ç

There is no reason for use Photoshop, since I can do the same things and with a FREE program like GIMP XD
Yah, I'm not a fan of PS :p
However, now that you mentioned it, I did my first digital coloration with Paint Pro Shop, too XDD

ANYWAY we're going OFF TOPIC :p

About the drawing ...yes, I'll upload on TAG as well :)
