Abyssal mermaid by moni158 Abyssal mermaid by moni158
Well that was fun...

Its a deep sea mermaid concept thingy :shrug: I've done a few of these but they never looked very 'abbysal' imo.

Before you point out her anatomy looks 'off' its intentional :D she needs to look long, thin, bony, creepy etc.

(the red things are gills, water goes through the top 4 and out the bottom 4)

*Edit, guys, its has nothing to do with titans. you guys have titans on the brain :iconohyouplz:*

That looks seriously cool, the tail is like an eels tail, and are those catfish whiskers on her waist? Cuz they really fit with it. Love the hair too! This is very good!

This is incredible! She looks creepy but beautiful at the same time. Great work as always.

She looks cool. Everyone forgets about deep sea creatures. Even the mythical ones, like deep sea mermaids. I like her concept.

Love the mouth. Love the tail. Very deep sea.

She is beautiful in her own dark way. I've never seen anyone take abyssal fish and turn them into something so lovely. Wonderful job.
I love how whimsical her hair looks and the lights along her body.

She looks kinda creepy, yet somehow beautiful at the same time. :3

Red bio luminescence is practically invisible to creatures at that depth.

This is really awesome!!

I love your mermaids. The adaptations to their environments makes them feel more real, if that makes sense.
Design-Me-Bad Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Its so creative and creepy? Awesome!

Love the background. And i love how you've used the colours so well to define the environment. Oh, this is so my taste in drawing!  Very well done.

At first I thought her mouth was sewn shut, but then I realized IT'S HER TEETH AND FELL IN LOVE I think I've fainted. 
lost-melfanian Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Absolutely Beautiful. :heart:

I love the bioluminescent spots and her nice pale coloring.
Something about her face makes me think of a cat, though.
TheGreatRayne12 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I like this. I've always thought of mermaids as kind of a predatory species myself. I was pleased with how Harry Potter did theirs, and I like this one
setsugen Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2013
i know iv already posted on this picture but i have to say i have fallen in love with this piece and am blown away at her beauty! :iconinloveplz:

Well, let's look at the bright side, at least sailors and fishermen won't have to deal with these girls. But bad news for the marine biologists that go deep sea in their submersibles. And kinda bad news for the mermaids themselves, since the navy would just blast them. :P


But awesome artworks by the way.

I love it when people take fairy tails ideas and turn them into something much more real. This is such a beautiful concept! I just love her slightly off torso and tail!! And of course the colours are splendid :)
