I spent a few hours putting together a step by step guide to drawing mermaids. I did this for the Mermaids Group on deviantArt. Mermaids have become more popular than ever--there's even a "World Mermaid Awards" con in Las Vegas next month.
I did all the art on the iPad in the Brushes app, using the Pogo stylus. One of the cool features of Brushes is the ability to generate a video of every pen and brush stroke, so you can show off any painting from beginning to end. I posted the video on Youtube here.
Here's the finished piece (warning: breasts)
Here's the video generated by the Brushes app:

Took a couple hours last night to sketch and paint this out on the iPad.
Here's a character study for a project I'm about to start, two of the main characters--art below and video showing progress below that. The video shows how I color and shade in the Brushes app on the iPad. I usually use Sketchbook Pro to do the rough sketch, bring it into Brushes to refine, color, shade, outline. I usually finish up in Sketchbook Pro--also using some filtering tools to adjust overall lighting, tinting, contrast.
To finish up, I brought the image into the Filterstorm app, dropped the contrast way down, and darkened it up, also brought the warmth and sat up.
