I wanted to make something that didn't show the lines of where I scanned in the orginial black line sketch. So I started working on a mermaid sketch using some new techniques to hide the lines and also show a realistic blend and shading effects of skin. Lauralie slowly began to develop and I started thinking it must be a lonely life to be a mermaid maybe I should give her some company. So, I began sketching the golden dragon to be her companion. I'm not sure what his name should be maybe one of you can make some suggestions. Maybe Kiranth ( I dunno).Once I had her finished and the dragon I needed some kind of back ground. So I decided to make a sea arch. the wizard in the sea arch was really accidental I didn't even know I had done it until a friend of mine mentioned it. There might be a story hidden in there somewhere. I just can't put my finger on it. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed drawing and painting them in photoshop.
