halfbody illustration commission for behlair on deviantart.
halfbody pieces are always interesting since i need to think of a seamless way of only showing half of the character and have it not look awkward. submerging their bodies in water is probably the technique i use the most (sometimes regardless of whether they look like they should be in water or not).
luckily, this character was a kelpie and quite at home in a swampy environment. tails are not usually included in these types of commissions, but sometimes you just gotta have them there for compositional balance!
