Eshekign, Alaeran Mermaid: Creature Art for Alaer and Kindred of the Sea

One of them is somewhat dolphin-like, breathing …

Today, I am showing some concept art I made for Frèlin, the capitol city of Elethri. These are some of my initial pieces learning how to do digital art (made with a program that was not really made for art and that I was already pushing to its limits). Nonetheless, I think they turned out …
