Dear Kerry & all following this tutorial! Hi talisman! Kerry, you have "Meriko's" B&W markings pretty well done.
But...the long white strip below the smaller top one is too long. The lower white marking should not be more than twice the top mark length. Please make it shorter from the back side.
Her straight hair can cover up what ears she has. Her cheek mark can be about 1/2 inch further out. Her scale. "Don't Hit ME!!!"
The back dorsal fin is just right!
The crashing wave looks very nice! A person could actually surf on it!
Kerry. Do you really want the Sea Turtle under the two? I would think it would be better in the right corner. What do you think?
And that big piece of coral under them. The scene is looking very nice. It will be a very colorful Fantasy painting when finished!
Till next update. Take care! chiron22--Don
