True Beauty by leinef True Beauty by leinef
This entry is made for this contest: Original Characters At Their Best Contest

The girl is Dara, one of my OCs, and it's showing her in her unterwater world. I didn't have trouble to work out the concept and composition but it was hard to color it. And in the end, I'm very disappointed about the scan =A=''
But I still like the piece and I hope some of you like it too! c: I totally missed to draw those old Korean buildings. They are so awesome!

My boyfriend said that it didn't look like underwater but I wanted to draw a world where you couldn't say at first sight where you were. Also, the atmosphere should be serious and calm, therefore I didn't want to add any water bubbles. I used some textures from cgtextures.com on the roof of the buildings and on the shark in the front. The rest is done with fineliner and colored pencils.
