Digital Colorings

I've been watching lots adult coloring/colorists videos on Youtube lately & so when this challenge came around at Land of Art to color fandom pages it was perfect timing. I wanted to try digitally coloring pages with a more 'painterly' look. Though I don't have any experience painting coloring pages with real//traditional media paint to begin with. Well, not since I was little & used those fun paint-with-water coloring books.
I haven't really taken much time to make anything with Krita in a while & the last version I used has was 2 or 3. I'm so used to using GIMP, but Krita is a million times better for digital coloring & just using my tiny graphics tablet in general.

This one is sort a mess but my favorite, if I don't say so myself. I tried to give it a real digital painting look. I used the default water color brushes to fill the sky & the default star field texture brush to add extra sparkles. I drew shiny scales on her tail because mermaids, of course, have bio-luminescence.
