Day Two: Ichthyocentaurs Picture

The challenge for Day Two was to draw a Monster or Creature that was good. I didn't do a whole lot of research for this one, but I've deduced that centaurs are good beings, so aquatic versions of them have to be good also, correct?

I'm really happy with how this image turned out, actually. I tried some new things with the shading, and I just love how it came out. I also threw together a simple background for this, and I'm pretty happy with how that came together as well. Doing this daily challenge feels like good practice for me--since it had been a long while since I had drawn--and I know that, in the long run, it'll definitely help me improve my technique and give me a reason to try some things out.

"In late poetical Greek mythology ichthyocentaurs were a pair of centaurine sea-gods with the upper body of a man, the lower front of a horse, and the tail of a fish. Also, they wore lobster-claw horns. They were half-brothers of the wise centaur Chiron and the sons of Poseidon and the sea goddess Amphitrite.
These two sea-gods, though little remembered, were set in the sky as the astronomical constellation Pisces."
