Freedom Warrior by missimoinsane Freedom Warrior by missimoinsane
So I wanted to work on something new and try and improve my skills so this has taken goodness knows how many hours but it's my first official piece of 2012.

Created in CS5 with Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch using just standard CS5 brush sets and a bit of imagination.

I am rather pleased, let me know your thoughts.

There are a lot of little mermaids kind of drawings here on DA but I have to say that it's the first time that I see a mermaid warrior ;O I really like this idea and the concept. It really stood out since mermaids are usually known only for their beauty and you just showed another side of them :) So first, the character, I think there could be more contrast between the light and the shadows and just to show the under-water effect even more, you could have made the shadows a bit in a dark-blue tone. The hair are really nice C: But maybe just a bit blurry at the end, it could be better if you've made some lock of hair longer than others instead of a strait line.
I especially really like the tail, beautiful sparkling effect :)
The background is pretty amazing as well ^^ The effect on the chains and the octopus are so well done.
Looking at this drawing it's like watching a frozen image of an important scene. It really made me want to watch the ending of the battle :)
Again, there are some places for improvement but overall, really nice work :)
What do you think?

I love the face, especially the eyes, and the tail coloration ^___^ I find it interesting that she would opt for a very comfortable looking bra and then go commando...but I guess that's the point!

Golly, I know how that is. So much to do and there's always something that turns up missing in the end! It's the carpet-gnomes - that's why I prefer hard-wood floors ^___^

The Little Mermaid - My favourite movie all time! End of! Hah. As said it was never my intention for this piece to reflect from that movie at all. Hehe.

Thank you xox

I really like the fact you have gone for your own idea about the tail with it blending into her thighs rather than joining directly at the waist. Also the sparkly effect of the tail is wonderful gives it a sort of scaled appearance. I also think that the way you have done the chains is amazing and the hair looks wonderful a nice contrast to the rest of the colours. The scene itself makes it look like an important scene from a story which makes you wonder what happened before and what is going to happen after. The only thing is that there seems to be a lack of shadow on her torso.

Oh Imogen! I love love love this! First of all because Mermaids are my favorite fantasy creatures.

I like the fact that you didn't do a conventional/typical mermaid tail that starts at her waist. The way it fades down fully into the tail is pretty great. The fins as well are pretty darn good, and goes with the warrior vibe. The only thing that really bothers me about the mermaid is her bra/top. I guess because it's so plain compared to her tail.

Overall I love the piece, the villain in chains in the background is awesome, and I think you did an awesome job of the chains and tentacles. Well done! :D

I still feel like my work looks very cut-out and I have no idea how to make it stop doing that!! Hummm... Thank you for your wonderful comment though Winter that's really really nice of you!! Thank you for all of what you said. There is actually stitching on the bra and to be honest I liked her better with nipples but didn't want to put a sensored screen on my work so reverted to a bra that wasn't flipping seashells hah. Anyways I really like it but I feel there are a lot of things I could have done better now that I look back at it!! Much love xoxo
