Merman Finished by Faerytale-Wings Merman Finished by Faerytale-Wings
Ok, I give up. this is the background I'll stick with. A simple gradient. I went through I dont know how many backgrounds before I gave up, NOTHING looked right behind him.
It was kind of irritating really.
Sorry it took so long, I know a lot of people fave'd it (thank you to everyone who did!) and I'm sorry the end product is kinda boring. lol
comments are welcome, let me know what you think or anything I could change or fix.

this is really good. a lot of people have a problem with making them look so stiff. its a marine creature, it's fluid, and here it looks like he's just casually flopping his tail up and down. very good work!

Hello,

This is very impressive! It might have been a little better for the color of his tail to start a little higher... but I really like the tail shape you gave him. And those fins are awesome! I don't know whether he looks really tired or sad. But I feel kind-of sorry for him.

Favorited,

I was going for a melancholy look, I'm not sure why, I just thought it suited the picture.
Lets say he was actually really happy, just posing for the picture! ^-^

well if it was something crappy you prolly wouldnt like it.
Or if it was a girly little pink bunny with cute little cherub wings and big eyeballs that bored into the depths of your soul with its sugary cuteness.
you probably wouldnt like that either.
