Mermaiden

This started out as a pose in my figure drawing class. It was done in vine charcoal. I scanned it in, but decided I really didn't like the legs on the figure-they just didn't turn out as strong as the upper body. So I gave her a mermaid fin. I was going to try and make the digital paint mimic the charcoal quality, but I kind of like the hybrid look or digital and traditional...She's just waking up from a short nap in the mortal sun.

Sorry if there seems to be an overwhelming number a female drawings lately...it's all my figure drawing class could get ahold of. Don't worry, the man stuff will come.
