Swimming in Circles

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  Work was crazy the last two weeks and my computer has been fighting me making Gimp unusable for a week with my pen pad getting bogged down.  This seems to happen periodically, frustrating the hell out of me.  Anyway, I have been working my way up the tale and am happy with how the tip looks further back now as it should be.  Took some time off the tail to work on shaping and improving the fin, again I am happy with the results.  I had a heck of a time thinning out a haze layer behind the spikes enough so that you get a subtle hint of the webbing in between instead of a cartoon fin.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish …

You know how the story goes; however, I am pretty sure I do not have a blue seahorse in the works.  Here is a progress update on the second seahorse I am painting for the major project I am working on.  I am having lots of fun with these paintings and hope you are enjoying them too.  This shows more work on the snout an end of the tail, two ends of the spectrum eh!
