Yin and Yang by Nine-Tailed-Fox Yin and Yang by Nine-Tailed-Fox
holy crap...
this pic has been sitting around for a while now, so i decided to take a quick break (well, not quick. about a 6 hour break) from school finals and free sketches to finally color them in. if the two mermaids look a like, they should: i just took the same pic and rotated it. the coloring process was NOT fun, but i am very pleased with the outcome, especially the background (since i suck at them so much). hope you all like it.

:star: UPDATE as of 8/10/10 :star:
figured i'd put how i feel about this pic now. it's funny to read the original comments and see how i though 6 hours was a long time to color a pic :XD: now i WISH coloring only took 6 hours! this started as just me falling in love with a pic in my fav 'how to draw manga' book and then drawing it, changing this and that slightly. i enjoy the concept of this pic, and even though it's old it still made it's way into the back of my portfolio. i'm surprised it's my most popular piece in my gallery, considering the quality isn't the best. maybe i'll recolor it in the future? who knows - my to-do list offers little rest lol.

:bulletpink: drawing: forgotten :bulletpink: coloring: 6 hours
:bulletpink: pose help from how to draw manga: bishoujo pretty gals

enjoy! :heart:

No, I mean how there's a little black dot in the white part and a white dot in the black part. You did it by alternating the bikini top colors. Pretty smart. :)

I like this, but I think it should be turned upside down.
In chinese, the light is "upward searching" and the dark is "downward searching"
but it doesn't really matter all that much.

The colors are truly amazing, your yin and yang are very accurate to each other. I dunno about you, but your bckgroung works very well with the picture. Your anatomy for this picture is very nicely detailed (and I love mermaids! ^0^) beautiful work, one of the best things I've seen you do!
