She is a lovely girl. You did a excellent job on her. Love the tail and I know how it is I draw mermaids and the tails can get very tedious.

I got a freeware program from off the net. Image fordge. I have put in my own brushes and have fishscales that I do the tails with now. When my new ones post than you can see the brush work.

:-) Jirah Reckinger replies: "okay!!!!"

Nice colors and I really like the head. 2 The arms could have been a bit larger, thought. And I have to agree that the tail looks sort of broken - I think it would look better with a longer continous curve.

:-) Jirah Reckinger replies: "yeah i guess i should have made it more fish than human (as if she had knees under those scales)
i am still working on perfecting my human drawings, so when i get better ill put more pics on"

I can see that her tail took you a long time to make, it turnes out really great with all the colours ^^

:-) Jirah Reckinger replies: "Aw, thanks. These days, now I’ve gotten better, the tail is the only reason I keep this. I might just redo it someday when I have a looooot of time. And I might just attempt to paint the background"
