Hi everyone,

Here is my first post - The Change of Melody.
It was from my old sketch in watercolor. I scanned it and finished it digitally.

  • original size 6000*4800 pixels
  • painted in Painter & color correction in Photoshop

The character was mostly inspired by “mermaid” and “Feitian”(flying Godness). People in East believe that “mermaid” has a divine power to change the weather. And “Feitian” is said to be a goddess of cloud, water, and music in Indian mythology. To me, there is some kind of relationship between these two mythical characters. I tried to blend those 2 “images” together and came up with this work. Hope you like it. All C&C are welcome!

p.s. Here is the link for people interested in learning more about “Feitian”.

cool design and beautiful metal painting ,but the girl’s skintones seems not nature enough ,keep it up~!:scream: :smiley:


Thanks for the feedback. Instead of smooth everything out in this work, I tried to keep some natural strokes to catch “the moment”. I experiment both warm and cool colors to pop-up and push back certain areas in the painting. Hope you like it!

nice detail and color. Keep up the good work


Thank you all for the c&c! I appreciate it! :slight_smile:


Wow, very beautiful work!:thumbsup: It’s great in all aspects, I like the painting feel in this digital work a lot. The lighting and texture on skin are very nice too. A 5 star for me:applause:!
