A pair of mer-gods, done for a request by Mermaidlover2728. Merrick (on the left) and Leilani (on the right) are husband and wife. A sunset seemed to fit them, though I had never painted one before; some reference shots were used for the sunset, and for the hands. The water and the rock Leilani's sitting on are modified photos I took myself. The mer-gods themselves were drawn in .3 mechanical pencil on several sheets on paper, then scanned and stiched together. They were colored in Painter IX with more layers than I care to count, and then touched up in Paint Shop Pro X2. August 25th, 2008. Characters belong to Mermaidlover2728.
