Shine: Orion by Chael Shine: Orion by Chael
Because... it is shiny on the shallow lagoon floor. Plus I was listening to a song called "Shine" by Slowdive on repeat while coloring it, so the word is stuck in my head. This is Orion again, the main character of my manga project. I'm thinking of finishing the lionfish girl next. So... yellow.

Thanks. I usually only answer comments that pose a question or somehow elicit a response, otherwise it is redundant I would hardly say almost never either.

He sure is shiny, though even more is the soft lagoon floor! It does remind exactly of the real thing.

When I saw the title, it reminded my of a song called "Shine", too. Only it was from the Newsboys, and most likely an entirely different genre than the music you were listening to. :XD:

I'm certain it was a very different genre, as Slowdive is a famous shoegazer band from the early 90's. Along with world music, shoegaze is easily my favorite musical genre. :D

As a general rule, I've been trying to avoid +fave-ing fish-boys and mermen, since it seems the people who +fave my mermen did so only because the only things they were +fave-ing at the time were mermen. But I really, really like how this looks. I especially like the fins.

Thanks, and if you like the finnage, check out anthias. He is based on that species.

Gotta love that yellow! His surroundings came out exceptionally well; it reminds me of the beach where I was on vacation at last week. There's a nearby sandy-bottomed bay that has a really shallow area where the water is crystal clear and is perfect for swimming. There's always lots of jellyfish, though.

Sounds like a great place to be, minus the jellyfish that is. Sparkly water is very calming.

It is...I wish I was still there! I've learned to deal with the jellies.

Aww, I love his coloring. x3 Usually yellow is WAY too overpowering for me, but he really is balanced and shaded/highlighted well, so it comes out as a natural tone. ^__^ Yay yellow. <3
