Mnrrg after another almost 12 hour session I've finally completed this piece.
My eyes feel like their melting. TT oTT
I'm really happy with how it came out. I do regret that it feels a bit stiff, but that's partially due to my still exploring the design and really wanting to have a good sense for their anatomy before doing anything that would distort their form too severely through forced perspective.
The False Mermaid can actually close her mouth completely without baring her teeth and when she does she's able to close her lips up showing off just her human ones with the monster lips tightly pursed shut to the point of seeming like a vague crack in her visage.
The True Mermaid also has similar such teeth though she cant open her jaw line to nearly such an extreme.
Story wise the 2 are trapped in a rather large research facility but despite the limited space the powers that be are powerless to bring down the False Mermaid without killing the True Mermaid, ash she willingly puts herself in the line of fire to protect the False, just as much as the False will viciously lash out at any soldiers or machines who try to get near them.
Werewolves would be little more than popcorn to this hulking abomination thankfully for them she exists far into the future of the world of Crimson Dames, in a time when mankind was finally starting to grasp the full extent of the lost technology and how to advance it to their cause.
I'll be posting it up to the Perilous Quest Gallery tomorrow as well and cast her out into the depth of the internet to see what shinies she can catch for me. ^ o^
I'd really love to hear what you all think of them and how they came out.
Still waiting on Dragon Shield to contact me about my current assignment, but they were moving house recently so I didn't want to bug them, I'll likely be starting up those projects this Monday but in the meanwhile I'll see if i cant advance the shewolf comic forward another page or so.
another 11 hour work day and shes really starting to come together now.
I can imagine her having some sort of crazy deep bellow and or a high pitch squeal that could shatter glass.
I suddenly want to rewatch Blue Submarine No. 6, which now that I think about it is a major subconscious source of inspiration for this character.
I apologize to my regulars for not playing videos in my streams lately. my followings growth has be come so stagnant of late that I'm looking to try something new to better advertise my work.
The plan is that I'll get clean footage and go back and edit it into a video later to post on youtube.
Issue is I need to throw down like 20 bucks for the for the 2 primary apps I'd need to get the work done from Adobe, and I just can't afford it at the moment.
Also I need to apologize for any troubles you might have accessing the member pages at the moment. Seems that my business account with weebly has expired and until i reup for the month I just wont have access to the higher level features the site is supposed to have.
I stayed up too late layering these flats in. I'm still contemplating if I shouldn't censor this piece in some way, but really the true version should be the version seen here.
I'll play up the lighting to make it look like they've been spotted by a flood light.
The True Mermaid will have a brilliant glow about her, were the False will have more subdued glowy bits like a deep sea creature.
I wonder how many have actually caught on that the True Mermaid only has 1 arm.
Tell me what you all think so far and please help share them around the web and help improve the number of supporters available. ^ _^
Mnrrrg I really messed up my sleep schedule getting the inks and flats for this complete :\
Hehe, seeing a pick of the Monstress I designed for the novella I'm kind of imagining now what would happen if the 2 monsters met.
I'm pretty sleepy at the moment tho so I must deactivate for the now. :p
Tell me what you think so far though I'm eager to know. :D
Most of the False Mermaid was completed today, should be able to finish up the inks tomorrow.
Need to put in some more details into the hair, some more scars here and there, perhaps some harpoons hanging out somewhere.
Trying to think of what a good way to censor the dreaded teets that would bring down the entire piece. I'm still not too certain about the positioning of the False Mermaid's eyes just yet. Will likely change up the hair and arm position for the true mermaid some.
Tell me what you think of them overall so far. ^ _^
Color wise the True mermaid will be a pale almost glowing white where the False Mermaid has a more bluish skin, will also add some glowy bits here and there. I'm thinking that I'll likely use multiple light sources like some sort of strobe light, as if their being monitored. and really play with the light and shadows.
Please don't forget to share with others to help spread the word. ^ _ ~
