Never let a colorblind man color without the reference.
It occurred to me that I have never drawn a mermaid in my life.
But this afternoon, I was waiting for other stuff to happen, and I did a silly sketch that I liked.
everything since was a disaster.
I made canvas too big, used a brush too thin, drew without the reference, and then decided to color to my own taste.
A chain of mistakes.
But we live and learn.
Anyhow, here is the fruit of an hour and a half of struggle.
Icing on the cake was the moment when I hit save, and my computer went pale.
I spent about 5 minutes dancing around it, cursing my luck ( nothing enrages me more than fucking PS crashing and loosing the work from scratch)
After all these years I am still an impulse saver. never remember to save or to increment my saves.
I do remember when shit goes wrong.
Also, I think that my PC is on its last legs, and I can not afford a new one.
Cheers to all,
