Probably the longest I've ever spent on a photomanipulation...I hate that detail is lost by downsizing the image, but the original file size was huge. It locked up Photoshop a few times while I was working on it=P The thumbnail looks ugly :o

I love this!! It's a wonderful depiction of an exotic mermaid. The extra fins on the tail and her arms are great. And the scaled look on her arms looks cool, too. She'd look exotic with webbing between her fingers as well.

Thanks so much! This particular piece is a photomanipulation...I'm not sure if you were referring to photomanipulating or digitally drawing something...I haven't done much digital art from scratch, though I've been messing with Photoshop for a while now, and am still discovering new techniques the more I use it. DA has a lot of photoshop tutorials in the resources section, but I can't recall any particular ones that I have used...mainly it's just practice:)
