K o i by Ravean K o i by Ravean
V2! Yaaaay.
OMIGOD TRADITIONAL ART?!?!
Because my mistress wished it. >:D
Yesh. So this is a retake of my previous Koi mermaid [link] redone for :iconladylilith-mirae: because I luffs her. She'll probably see this afore I have a chance to give it to her, but I wanna upload it now, soooooo. Yeah.

The scanner K I L L E D this. It makes me so saaaaaad! I worked relatively hard on this... Kinda. *three hours from start to finish* XD
Whathca think? Should I do more tradtional art, even though my scanner just eats all the pretty colors? *nom nom nom*



Done entirely by hand with a ballpoint pen and Roseart colored pencils. Whoo for high-end art supplies.

I mean I've seen mermaids...but not ones like this! Plus the colors you choose for any of your pictures are so bright and vibrant! I was wondering if i could try to make a dragon like one of yours, I mean I'll probly make it twisted looking but the color wise.

Thank you so much!
I'm not really sure what you mean by "dragons like mine," if you wouldn't mind elaborating? XD

Oh, okay.
Yeah, she's part of a species of mine called "Leone," although I've been thinking about changing the name. Sure, you can make your own. They're pretty diverse in terms of body type, hons, feather arrangement, and coloration. I do ask if you make one that it not have the color red in it though. : )

Totally ok with those terms, besides i need to get away from using red so much. I use that color too often

I do nots thinks that thy scanner hath devoured thine colors and me thinks thy colored portrate is most glorious and thy technique should be mimiced at some point in the future.

Eh, you wouldn't say that if you could see the real thing. It seriously just ATE the colors. WTF? What did I ever do to it?
Thanks. I really enjoyed it, so I believe I will do more. Sometime. Eventually.
