Commission for :iconmerman1234:

"She is a elf warrior and the humans are getting ready to invade her homeland by ship. In order to defeat the humans she needs a weapon of immense power and she heard of the trident that once belonged to the king of the seas, now long dead, from an elf witch. She and the elf witch locate the trident and now its only a matter to retrieve and use it on the human ships. After many dives and nearly exhausted she finds the trident but once she holds it, she is transformed into a sea-centauress. Once she recovers from her surprise she will sink the human ships and become the savior of her land."

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-09-20
Sea Centauress by *minties is a beautiful painting filled with color and imagination. The distortions in the water and the gently fading background add such depth and character to the image! ( Featured by damphyr )

Congratulations on your Daily Deviation. I just found out about your art and love it; amazing body study and I love how you portray fantasy characters. Also amazing colors and love how you support the main character with the under sea drawing.

Love the backstory on it. The background reminds me of the little mermaid a little. The Centauress herself looks great, I love the combination you did of putting both the creatures together.

The color of her hair is stunning. (and very little mermaid-esque) In fact, everything about this piece is stunning, all the colors of the water. And the fish. Love the fish. :D

Well, nicely placed waving hair ^^; hehe I love the background, so many little fishies. For some reason when I full view, the fish go’s from happy fish to emo fish :? Maybe they don’t like being enlarged :3

Yeah i don't usually get this many views but someone decided to give this a DD. While i really appreciate such spotlight, i personally find this piece undeserving since its a colored sketch and not half my personal best.

:iconbizzare-freak:
Bizzare-Freak Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
of course it's deserving, the sketch only adds to the style, i think it gives it charm, sometimes digital art can look cold and lifeless, leaving in the human element can make it more inviting. it's a great piece of work :)
