I was doodling and got carried away. I started to add little patterns and then I kept adding and adding. It's a very unplanned piece lol. I did want her to have a specific expression though... like she's kind of sad and about to undo her hair.

A horse and a fish

A centaur, a mermaid, and a message in a bottle.

Most of the time, I tend to like my sketches more than the finished pieces. I think the rough sketches usually retain the feeling that I originally wanted when I draw more. Sometimes after spending so long trying to clean things up and making them perfect, it seems like that feeling gets lost in the process. This is another one of those rough sketches, that initially I was going to just do a color study. I knew that I wanted this to be muted with limited color range and a strong hue. At the same time, I wanted to make sure my values are good. After all that learning, I still couldn't really do it right T_T. Sigh. I'll try again on the next piece.
