My Art: Merbettas

So, I attempted to draw a fish, but that was just LULZY FAIL.

I decided to draw Merbettas because I have drawn Merpeople before. I prefer to draw them more fish-like instead of human, so I drew her arms to be pretty much ventral fins. Not functional as fins but mildly functional as hands (two fingers and a thumb). Her "ears" are pectoral fins. This is Starburst, she's a very shy, easily spooked HMPK girl:




Any criticism is welcome. I would actually appreciate some criticism because I'm self taught >_<"

It's traditional then scanned into the computer. I use Photoshop CS5 to ink and colour with my mouse LOL. Some parts are tablet, but I overall am terrible with tablet ><"

The "background" and "seaweed" are digital though, XD. The rock is a texture :P
