Beneath the World by BlueRoseArkelle Beneath the World by BlueRoseArkelle

; u; Ahhh anyways... yeah. My poor attempt at a background. haha.
These are my three Merboy OCs, Avinzul (orange), Seph (blue) and Selkie (grey).
It is funny actually because when I began this isn't wasn't anything like this. Actually, I was just doodling Avi. Then I added Seph and Selkie and from there it just grew into what it is now. haha!
I'm kind of mad at myself though. I wanted to make a really awesome sky like I envision in their "world" but I got tired and simplified it. OTL
As for the title, it has to do with my personal project "Wake" -the story that these characters are in. I can't really explain it any further because this is the internet! xD
In truth, their colors aren't quite like that. But I made them lighter and in some places more yellowish to reflect the lighting.
xD And as for the water. Yes I'm well aware water doesn't really look like that. Again, it partially has to do with my "story". Though it is also that way because I can't draw water! xD Too bad I can't explain what I was going for, if I could it would make much more sense!

....xD on a side note, I like drawing Seph's silly, flat, fishy nose.

Anyways....yeah! Practice practice!
Must practice more!

Avinzul, Seph, and Selkie Me, Arkelle.
"Wake" story, concepts, and art belong to Me, Arkelle.

I think this is very nice. Don't worry about backgrounds, I can't make them for jack either. Yours actually looks quite nice, with the sunsetty sky (though seeing how you envision the sky in this alternate universe would be awesome), the colourful reeds, and the speckly pattern of the water that match Avinzul's freckles. Avinzul sure has a cool design, I like his spots. Seph also looks cool, though he seems pretty arrogant (not sure, I forget what his personality is like) and of course, we have good ol' Selkie who's being his cute little sealy self. Very nice.

And I don't see what the problem is with the water, since when do all artistic representations of water look exactly like water in real life?

xD Well at least i'm not the only one who struggles with backgrounds!~

; v; Yeah! I hope to draw more pictures with backgrounds that take place in my own little world because allot of the environments are really interesting, well at least to me! <3

; v; Haha~ I kinda love Avinzul's design too. Allot of people seem to like his design, so that makes me happy~
xD Haha, yeah, Seph isn't particularly arrogant, but his rather unamused face and strong gesturing makes him seem so. I like having characters whose body language conflict with their personality. xD haha
e ve Oh Yes, Selkie can only be one thing. Cute. Oh ho ho.

xD Yes, this is true! I just need to practice with it a bit more in my opinion. Its probably not a good idea to have a crazy concept in mind for water when you've never drawn it before. Like me. OTL

I'm so excited to see them in color OwO
Avinzul looks absolutely charming. His anatomy and colors, ah, he looks so good. And suitably youthful.
Seph's anatomy came out very well here, too. I really like the way you drew his back and his tail. The coloring of her tail is beautiful:heart:
And Selkie is cute. I like the way you drew the grey spots on his skin.

As for the background... Um, I wonder if I can give you ani advice since I fail at backgrounds myself XD
The perspective, in my opinion, isn't that bad at all! The rocks look pretty good. Too bad that I can't help you with water because I can't draw it myself, either^^; I should practice...
I think it would've been better if the sea in the horizon was, um, straighter... Or something? It looks almost as if there are waves in the ocean when at the same time, there aren't.
But you've done a great job with the colors here:) And anatomy!

> u< I thought you would be! <3
:la: Yes! Anatomy that looks halfway decent? ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME.
xD lololol no but seriously, Thanks <3 Improvement! 8D

o vo Oh, I see what you mean. xD I should pay more attention to stuff like that!As it was I sort of ran out of patience the further I traveled up the page, so its no wonder I didn't notice that! xD haha! I am not so good at patience when it comes to drawing if you hadn't noticed. xD Now that I think about that is probably why I enjoying sketching so much :heart:
Hixateez Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, improvement, definitely!

I wish I was more of a patient artist, too^^; Maybe I could draw backgrounds then XD
