A Queen Among Women by TheShadowEmpress A Queen Among Women by TheShadowEmpress
Aaaaand it's finally finished! :D So, um, yeah... a week late for Sally and Poseidon week on tumblr. Oops. Anyway... I finally managed to find a way to colour their hair, though it still looks a bit uncompleted. And the water splashes look way different from the rest of the water, but... meh. Whatever. It's FINISHED. That's what matters. And this is my first try at a more creative title, I guess. :XD: But Poseidon called Sally a queen among women in TLT, and I thought it would fit this piece. :D

The line art is by :iconmonsiearts:. :) I made some changes, mostly because it looked odd or because I was wondering why some line existed. The biggest change was a strand in Sally's hair, so nothing big.

And I erased those individual strands from Poseidon's hair after realizing his hair is probably wet. Wet hair sticks in clumps = no individual strands. But it looked nice. :( And yeah... my first try at digital painting. It's slow. And hard. :P And ArtRage is mainly meant for traditional-looking art. but I don't have really have anything else, either, so... I have to use it. :/ My current version has pretty much got a total of TWO TOOLS that aren't somewhat traditional. QAQ

I'm not sure if I have anything else to ramble about. Colouring is mine, line art is by MonsieArts and Sally and Poseidon belong to Rick Riordan.

Download for full size... though it looks better when it's smaller. :XD:

Oh, and here's the WIP: link

EDIT: Okay, seriously, this is getting almost as many faves as the original line art... go fave the line art, for the gods sake!

...And thanks for the faves. :aww:

yeah its not easy to paint a water
especially water splash effect
but i think you did a great job tho
i think it will be so much cooler
if you made the skin is looks wet
cause they are on the water
more highlight on the skin

Awww :heart: 

Every time I make an OC who is related to one of the seven or has a parent that another demigod shares, I feel bad because they always love the character's mother or father so much :\
