The Mermaid. She will drag you to her domains and make you dream.

This is what Bill, SirenaBonita, a DeviantArt premium member ( thought when he come up with an inquire to produce one pinup 11 X 17 inches print (digital art) to him.

Bill likes mermaids very much, and he gave me all freedom to make a pinup to him. The only requirement, that the mermaid should remember one model he likes: Vikki Blows, which official site is in this link:

As my client has asked, this is the result.

If you wish you can see more about how I produced it in my website, news section just click on this link (

I did the initial pencil sketch, scanned it, send to the client that has approved it.
After that I made a speed painting version on Photoshop and sent it again to the client, that approved.
The final step was adding the background to complete and balance the scene.

Everything took around 3 weeks, with a workload of 2/3 hours a day.

Thank you Bill for giving me all freedom to develop this image to you and for trusting on my skills; I am sure you loved your 11 X 17 inches print pinup.

I also hope you like it and as always comments are welcome.
