The Little Merborg by Risachantag The Little Merborg by Risachantag
So... I started this one almost two months ago, then ended up with next to no time to draw, and only just got back to it this week.

It's been a while since I've posted original art, though recently I've been getting to do a whole lot of awesome stuff at work, so fanart's been a good break. I've just been given the okay to post a few pieces from work up here on DA too, so look forward to that in the future!

Anyway, about this picture? Well, I just thought it'd be interesting to do a more 'modern world' mermaid. I wanted her to look like she'd adapted to the industrial environment, incorporating pieces of scrap and chain in her costume.

Naturally, she'd need to come to shore every so often to polish off that rust!

Time: 10+ hours
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Wacom tablet, cgtextures.com
