Merfolk by Trick17 Merfolk by Trick17

In the last couple of month, I tried to teach myself digital painting. I am a longtime Magic the Gathering fan, enjoining the game and the art and I always wanted to try something similar to my favorite card game.

This piece was intended as a playmat for M:tG, speaking of some minor compositional choices and aspect ratio, since I found out that you can make your own at some shops. And because I like fantasy races, I decided on this common topic for my first work.


If you are interested, I'm open for commissions, e.g. for custom playmat, sleeves, what you like. Or if you simply want this as your playmat. Just drop me a line here or at fabian.n.fischer[at]gmail.com
Made with Krita.

Very nice. The level of detail here is simply Astonishing. i like how she looking back at the land behind her with an almost forlorn expression. Everything about the mermaid herself is incredible, even how the skin behaves at her joints shows an amazing attention to detail. Very well done. i only have one nitpick and as a nitpick it is a small item in the face of the amount of work that must have gone into this; the water coming off the rocks of the tide pools seems too reflective and makes the water almost look like mercury. i'm sorry that doesn't help, but i'm unsure of how to get the correct effect.

Excellent job, she looks very aquatic.  I really like how you made the hair look like seaweed.
