Add a creature

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I al­ways think a por­trait paint­ing should have el­e­ments that in­sin­u­ate a greater nar­ra­tive in the scene and en­liven the con­text. For this piece, I in­sert a lit­tle deep sea creature into the en­vi­ron­ment to ac­com­pany the mer­maid.

Fi­nal ad­just­ments

To com­plete my mer­maid I use the Liq­uefy func­tion to ad­just the shape and de­tail, and then I tweak the colour bal­ance. Fi­nally, I im­port the im­age into ArtRage to ap­ply some sub­tle oil paint high­lights. And now my paint­ing is fin­ished… or per­haps I should just say, “Fin!”
