Born from the sea by Lady-Azaleia Born from the sea by Lady-Azaleia
This is Judith, one of the main characters of my comic 'Shadow of the Immortals'.

I made the sketch of this drawing a few months ago but I was afraid of coloring it because I thought I would ruin it haha! Personally I love this character and her dress, I tried to make her look like a mermaid so that's why her dress looks similar to a mermaid tail. I've also put in practice a few things I've learnt on DA Nod.. Anyway I still feel I have a lot to learn about coloring XD

I hope you like it, and feel free to leave your critiques :)

Its quite the sight to see compared to most digital anime styles. Its a nice use of what first appears as a nice watercolor pencil or just plane colored pencils. There is no wrong lines or miss placed colors seeing how well you put them all together, adding different colored shading in each highlight and lowlight. the Background is simply remarkable as it both fits in with the main focus of the picture and also complements it as well. What I mean by that is, is that is a beautiful background but too much going on that it takes your attention away from the main feature. All in all I think its an easy favorite in my book
What do you think?

Very nice use of colours. The line work looks so delicate and you just made everything so light and believable in movement.
Great job, and keep up the amazing work!

it's so beautiful it reminds me a lot of the ancient Greek goddess Aphrodite who was born in the waves of the see. Don't be afraid to use colours see you made a masterpiece what you are doing on the paper expresses your soul you were afraid and i can feel that try to recolor it with the same tones But with softer edges. Let your imagination go wild. You are very good keep working!!! :-)

Aww thank you so much!! You're completely right, I wanted her to look like a Greek goddess.. Actually she's got a trident (like Poseidon's trident), after I finished the drawing I noticed that it didn't look much like a trident -_-.. I've used a lot of Greek mythology for the story of my comic so you're going to see a lot of my characters looking like this :)
Thanks also for  your advice, I know I'm a bit afraid of going crazy with colors because when I do that I never like the result haha! I need to keep practicing, I'll try to take more risks next time with the colors!

your welcome it's truly amazing.If you need any help about Greek mythology don't be afraid to ask i know a lot since I'm from Greece. And please life is a risk give your shot and be proud of it whatever it is. Colours are life. So give life at your creations and they will give you life too! Good luck with your comic keep working hard! :-)

OH! Are you Greek? I'm sure you could help me a lot with my comic! Sometimes I have so many questions and I don't have anyone to discuss them haha! If you read it I hope you don't get the feeling that I'm destroying your mythology (sometimes I think about this too.. haha). I just loved Geek mythology at school but I didn't know much about it when I started to create this story.. I had to learn by myself! haha 
Thank you so much for your support, I'll absolutely take into account your advice :)

yes i am! And i will be very happy to help you and advise you. Come on! This is your work you can do whatever you want so do not put limits. Like with Greek mythology. Take a shot from it But put your rhythm and style at your comic that is what it will make it special. It's a very good job though. Love the art. I told you that before... If you have any question tell me. I would be glad to help and support you ;-)

Oh thanks! I definitely might ask you something one day about it :) but is difficult to do it without spoiling the story to you haha! I hope you like the story when is more advanced, for now I haven't advanced much with the mythology stuff but anyway the base is there :)
Thanks for your supportHug

Aww thanks! I'm very happy to make some friends like you on the internet haha, I'll try to think about some stuff and ask you about your opinion :) Now I'm very focused on drawing and the story advances too slow, but one day I'll have to start thinking more seriously about the plot. I've got the main things already planned but there're some details I haven't decided yet. I'm afraid to leave some plot holes! haha, but anyway.. I'm trying my best!
