Erasing the last few lines
I fix a few errors in the pose and anatomy, which weren’t noticeable until things were rendered a bit more. If I had made a clean sketch to begin with, this wouldn’t have been an issue. However, I enjoy starting the painting process from a rough base, because I’m able to develop the image more naturally, rather than having everything strictly laid out from the get-go.
Rendering body elements
There are still a few areas I haven’t touched much since the sketch stage. I finish up the last few fins on her head, keeping the ones farther away from the face more simple and soft. The cloth and legs need a few finishing touches. I feel like the arm guards were a bit distracting, so I tone them down and render them properly, taking inspiration from corals and sea urchin shells.
