Excellent! Love the design of her hair.
I love the look of the hint of a gorgeous human butt under her tail skin ...sexy! I like all the extra little fins, too.
Beautiful! How long did it take to finish? I bet a long time took you drawing all these scales.. Amazing!
Oh, thanks a lot, i really appreciate it, and yeah .. it took some time to color and shade the scales, i almost swore i won't draw anything with scales ever again, but i went ahead and did anyway, still haven't colored it yet XD
Haha I think scales tempt you somehow I mean, it's a great challenge, and a human being is a challenger, however sometimes a lazy one, lol ^^ I'm sure I would be swearing to myself never to draw something that complicated as these scales again ^^' Really great pic
Thanks a lot, i usually don't refuse a challenge but self-imposed challenges are usually the hardest to pull off because they require a lot of dedication and will, it's usually easier to get worked up when someone challenges you (since it sparks competitiveness), i have to say that part of my improvement came from entering art-contests here on DA, it really helped me a lot.
wow! This kind of reminds me of Cleopatra.
Thanks, but that was an unexpected comparison, is it because of her hair ?
fantastic! rare to see a tough looking mermaid, wonder whats her story?
Thanks a lot, she is in fact based on an OC i made so the mermaid-version doesn't have a story on her own but her looks and features are all inspired by the original character XD
i see, that's pretty cool! love mermaids
Same here, i find them quite the mesmerizing creatures (wished at many times when i was a child that they were real XD)
so did I! especially after I read the fairy tales of hans christian andersen! I cried so hard for her, wished I could meet her and give her a hug ;_; I was cursing the prince for being stupid
At least Ariel in Disney's version was a lot luckier (she is my fav Disney princess as well, really adorable, independent and endearing in both mermaid and human form).
I really love Ariel too! She is a really lovely character!! I don't wanna see her die, but I think the original story was more beautiful - but yea I hated the prince ahh it's such a dilemma!!!
Yeah, but the prince of the original story wasn't evil or a bastard, he just didn't know the little mermaid saved his life and that she would die if he didn't love and marry her ... it's probably because the little mermaid was mute and didn't know how to write or read .. so she had no way of telling him she is the one who saved his life XD
Very awesome OC here.
I like the rendering.
I like the rendering.
kinda hard not to love this one!! Wow.
Beautiful mermaid, with a very unique design! Amazing, really!
I love this character, but what interests me more is her eyebrows XD not to many characters(mainly female) have thicker eyebrows..a lot of them have eyebrows that are very small or non-existent, so I like that hers are thicker :3 just a random thing i noticed XD;;
love the color and texture
Fantastic work, very nice coloring!
Great pose and composition
very interesting character
Whoa! thats amazing xx
