Phedre and Janine by arshesnei
This one took probably a week and a half to do, in my spare time. So I guess around 24 hours total. I wanted to try some effects so I tried out the new brushes in PS 7. Basically Phedre the character on our left is an Asian Otter and a hunter. Janine is her older sister and like to dabble in Magic. The water effect is actually a water dragon creature Janine summoned. The reason Janine can wear gloves (if you notice they're otters with webbed hands) is that she had an accident which tore the webbing of her hands.
I did this picture mainly because I need practice at putting more than one character in a scene and holding hands is a challenge if you don't draw hands well.
