"Secret Kisses" Color Test


A quick color test for "Secret Kisses".  I guess I haven't done a mermaid in shades of blue green.  I like the way it looks.  I'll stick to something very close to this for the final version. ^^

    1. Hehehe... touché! XD

      I guess I found my kind of 'dark' -- it's not gore and horror for the sake of shock. I found it easier to do dark stuff if I can think of some kind of story to go with the visual. But sometimes, while I'm looking at a blank piece of paper, figures just appear and I follow their contour with my pencil. This one was one of those. The concept is so radically different from what I originally envisioned when the EV theme was announced at the beginning of the month, it's kind of creepy.

      How is yours coming along?

    1. You can always come back to a theme later, if a theme doesn't inspire you right away (or after quite a bit of pondering ^^; ). I've had a few that just didn't appeal to me (among the old themes that were already up there when I joined), like "The Key" and "The Locket". I'm like, "Uhhh...". And their stock photo challenge thing was totally not interesting to me. XD Good luck iwth your swan girl!
