I like to start some of my illustrations with a blue pencil and quickly get the concept down on paper. This is an example of how I start most of my art pieces.

This is a very atractive piece, the color makes it very appealing also.

Great work. Stunning portrait of what should be. I suggest you color her hair dark brown rather than purple, and her fin silver.

:-) Joe Bornhard replies: "I will take your suggestion under consideration if you take mine. Go color, paint, create etc a mermaid with dark hair and a silver fin first!"

Just...Wow. I've noticed that most artists who know what they're doing((I.E. NOT ME ^^12) use blue pencils. Is there a special reason for that, or just a partial liking to the color blue?

some artists use blue pencil because some scanners cant see blue, when they go over the pic in ink they wont need to erase or worry about stray pencil lines. In this case i think it is just for a mood. -great anatonomy work Bornhard. i respect that you can draw a realstic female!
