Siren FFVIII by MercyMurrain Siren FFVIII by MercyMurrain
I'm so happy with how this came out but I want to know what YOU think! So please leave me a comment whether its judgement or suggestion.

Also, I'm reknown for not putting backgrounds on, so i'm trying this 'colour strip' out as a new motif of my art - opinions?

I did another!

Fantastic work! The subtle change in color from the yellow to the pink in the feathers came out particularly well!

I personally thought it was a little rough and at the same time, i didn't want it to be just "smudged" together - so thank you.

Nice work, head to toes (I've heard a lot of artists say that the feet are the hardest to get right on a human/humanoid figure, but I think you've nailed it). Also, I love how the colors of her "plumage" seem to blend into each other naturally.
And the "colour strip" totally works for me, too.

Thanks for sharing your art with us, MercyMurrain, especially Shiva (one of my personal faves)!

I find feet very difficult, as well as hands - but studying it is the only way to overcome.

They still need fixing but thank you so much for a REAL comment!

Thank you! I know i had made her a little more curvey than her original, but I find it more sexy than bone :) And ofc, a siren is design to 'lure' ;)

Wow, it's very good. Very realistic body, not epic-thin-big-ass-n-boobs-doll... In Poland we called such a girls "healthy";)

Well I went with huge boobs for sexul appeal but I thought it would be ridiculous to have a skinny frame so I went with as you say a 'healthy' figure and i'm really glad with it :D

6 inches? Tkats not so much in tche end... Add two inches for the heels and two inches for the hairdress and there will be only two inches of difference:D

Oh goodness the colours are so pretty!
I like the colour strip idea, I've began to use it too. It's really effective for bringing out colours. Possibly, if you want to bring out the purple tips, maybe try a more yellowy or green strip? Just a suggestion that may work :) Play around with the hue and saturation as well for every project, to see if you get a better scheme by accident. But it's so awesome. I would love to be able to draw like you.

I chose blue because Sirens are usually found in the water... I'll have play around with it actually and will just change the file if I like anything.

Thank you very much :D
