Mermaids are meant to be beautiful ;)
Tracing is brush+ink and colors are PS and some new brushes.
I must confess that most of the times I just get clueless about colors.
Lately I’m researching a lot of references from japanese woodblock printing and whenever it is difficult to figure out colors, shading, and so on…I just try to keep it simple and do my best on a limited pallete.
Needless to say, still working it out! :)
(p.s.: So late for sketch dailies, haha!)
