I started this back in February, sketched it out at work. Didn't touch it at all for a while, but I know it would be my entry for
's contest for mythological beings. She's one of my favourite artists, so I HAD to enter. I didn't place at all, haha. It was a good waste of ~55 hours though!
Now for the Credits. There was no way in HELL I could have done this without the following:
for her digital painting tutorial. (great for skin!)
for hand references
for fish scale texture
for the fox coral
for the trumpet coral
for the ship reference.
And National geographic for the shark reference.
