Commission :: Eel Mermaid by Maria-Ylla Commission :: Eel Mermaid by Maria-Ylla
This is the finished commission for *Merman1234. This diver girl gets magically transformed into a latex eel mermaid.

This was lots of fun to do. I haven't done any Photoshop art in a while, and this was the perfect excuse to do it. I also got to play with multiple lightsources, textures, more realistic hair, etc. Lots of fun. I'm very happy with how she came out.

I tried a new hair technique on her! Tell me what you think! :D

Stingray Mermaid

Medium: Photoshop.
Time: 8-10 hours. I think :)

I like the idea of a eel mermaid. Her tail is so beautiful. If I was the girl I would be happy.

one of my most faved mermaid transformation. the concept is not too complex, but very precise expressing the transform. the lighting and the shape of eel tail is almost perfect for her. whole picture looks very comfortable, and of course, also sexy xD

Nice concept, I like the way her colouring goes right up to her neck, the way a wetsuit would cover her - very cool :D

This is amazing, I love the way you coloured the hair. The little details (like the diver's goggles) really add to the piece =) I'm so watching you from now on.

Yes, I do. :#1:

And I think it is a good trick to draw backround and main-person on different documents, when you have to keep your MB-size smal.

Great. Nobody has written about the trident yet. I think it is very good, like the other said things. It looks very 3dimensional.

... and the sinking diving goggles behind her are a very funny detail!
