I always try and imagine a fish with the same body and if it looks like it wouldn't be able to swim then I change it, fish are actually quite stocky haha! Also if you wanted the integration from skin to tail to be a bit smoother, it could look nice if you just put some subtle red and pink tones from the tail dappled in to her skin, even right up to her breasts on a super low opacity.
    However this all depends on what you're going for so please disregard this if you want to can't wait to see more!
    Wooo mermaids!!!

    Cool yeah I agree re the tail - but it is definitely a concious decision (love the long lines of klimt) and she's magical so i've gone down the 'would'nt work, but looks nice' route!! and yes.. a wrasse!! I was going to do one of the wrasses i saw in hawaii this year, but found these little fella's in mys earch and loved the spiky fins! SOOO beautiful...

    Yup, the merging of the belly to the fish part will be fully blended and integrated with markings on the skin etc

    I love your choice of fish - lion fish is it?

    I seem to be jumping into all of these this week. Can you tell I'm lacking inspiration Well, not any more! First time CHOW!
    My muse is pretty urban, but with natural roots (hence the horse body!), and definitely inspired by a level of political consciousness, as well as just simply enjoying making lines on walls (or paper, in reality)
    Drawn so far in pencil, thinking I'll take it digital now because of need to fix anatomy issues and general urge for tabletty freedom but I'm a bit nervous cause I haven't got the tablet out in about two years. :|

    working on the drawing

    its been quite slow... wanted to probe drawing directly on painter... it has some good stuff but you want it all finished all the time...
    working on the gesture, seductive, relaxed, impressioning, strong... ill be doing something else on the hair, and drawings all over her body

    Been a while since I've tried one.

    My muse is of course a buxom lady with sci-fi elements, tools of my trade, a hoody of sorts, and a set of monster hands for support

    I might not make it in time since I just drew this today, we'll see

    Thanks for the crits. I see the finished works are great as well as the new entries keep them up! Sorry I can't give comment to all.

    Update on my Muse. I'm now adding color tones and extra details. A bit slow and tiring in the hands but I'm liking it so far. Hope I make it on time. But if I can't I'll still finish it.

    Ruri - Thanks very much Oh and don't worry, that's not the crop for the final, I was just showing the parts that I'd worked on instead of showing off her scribbly tail heehee
    ArtbyManon - Lovely, sounds fantastic, I'm very excited for the final product! And yes yes to lion fish, they're just so fancy, I love them so
    Carnifex - Looking great! I love the way you've coloured her, she almost seems to glow!

    I know I won't finish this (I never do...), but I wanted to post my start anyways. Not everything is set in stone quite yet, but the ideas are getting there.

    CHOW #226 Matias

    My Muse! Ok, this was a really tricky think for me... I dont really have anything or anyone I would call my muse, but I feel like most of the time inspiration is eluding me so i thought I would make my muse doing just that! Getting away from me, I wanted her to be a bit mean/cold. Originally going to have her coming at you with me in the background but I decided I wanted her getting away from me (and a few other less valid reasons! ) I wanted her pose to be dramatic, not sure if the foreshortening is working right but I am guilty of alot of static poses so just trying to push my boundries a bit!
