The Little Mermaid Tutorial

 Click Images for a larger view.

I came across the old folder of my Little Mermaid Illustration and noticed I saved iterations of my steps. This means I can do a tutorial. Yay!
It's rare I'll document my progress in my illustrations because I'm extremely lazy to take 2 seconds to save out images.
I tried to cover exactly what I did on this piece and my normal tendencies for Illustrations.
I hope this explains it well.

Also here is a list of the major brushes I use in my art (mostly Illustrations). These are Painter specific brushes (not Photoshop).
I'm pretty basic when it comes to painting. I haven't used any photo texture specific stuff yet. I have used an overall canvas texture to complete a few pieces, but apart from that I wield the normal painter brush for majority of things.
I work in Photoshop or Painter or both. I draw everything by hand traditionally and scan into the programs to work from there. The brushes are the best things I've come across! I urge you to try/implement these awesome gems!

If you have any further questions or need clarification please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
