Preparing a portfolio on a Sunday

One of things I have had on my to do list for at least 2 years now, which I hope to do over the next couple of weeks is to create an online portfolio. Here is a little Photoshop illustration I did yesterday and in the wee hours of this morning, which I am thinking of using, and yes it is aiming at children's book illustrations.
Below is last week's sketch completed. It was originally conceived for Mr. T's Creative Tuesday  but was not finished in time - it is meant to be a very partial view of a mermaid.
Hope you have a great Sunday and pop by Sophia's Sunday Sketches to see what the others are up to.
hugs.
