Breaking the Surface by MissPinks Breaking the Surface by MissPinks
Illustration of one of my new little fishy and future manga characters (hopefully) you can see here:
this version is a bit more masculine and realistic :> (its a male)
Here i illustrated a scene i have in mind for the possible manga. The characters are all deep sea fish and decide to travel to the surface. This image is his first encounter with the surface of the ocean. 8D kind of like us dipping our feet into the water for the first time

I spent quite a few hours on this and i feel its my best peice so far. it has a few issues that maybe i can sort out at a later date but otherwise im pleased :) thanks everyone who kept me company on livestream while doing this, it was plenty of fun and great to ask when i couldnt make a decision (which was a lot of the time)

If you want to join in when i stream i usually post a journal but updates are more frequent on my new fb page [link] (i also posts wips and stuff there i dont post to DA)
!!! :star:im also having a contest on my fb page, all you have to do is like and share a post and you can win a print and a secret prize or other print (this will be one of the prints!):star: !!!

i dont really want critique atm because ill be planning on coming back to the problems later :la:

I used:
Photoshop CS5
time taken 7+ hours idk

This is so cool! I'm actually going to be writing a fan fiction that involves mermaids and my character does a similar thing! Her name is Jovie and she lives in a city deep in an ocean trench but goes up to the reef from time to time. Her mother tells her time and time again not to the surface(going on the reef is fine but her mother means don't stick your head out of the water and breathe air) but a few times she has sat just below the surface and stuck her hand out of the water to see what air is like!:D
