Wow, that's so beautiful! I love the darkness of it! :heart:
To begin, I would like to bring to light that your artwork here is absolutely heart-stopping.The technique you have implemented is somewhat awesome. It is apparent to me that you put your soul into it with your undiluted variation of talents. The fore-shortening of this picture is perfectly conforming for the effect that I sense you are attempting to achieve, but with thought this comment is more than likely frivolous. However, I see that your use of imagination could have been improved upon as I expect that it doesn't duplicate the quality observable in the remainder of the creation. In conclusion I would like to illuminate that it has been a pleasure to invest energy in this comment for you and I hope it will inspire you to up the level of your artwork.

let's see..to start, let me reiterate how much i love your work! maybe my opinion is a little biased, but you never cease to stun me with your awesome coloring skills, more specifically the lighting! the choice of a red glow rather than blue-green really made this that much more impactful! what i love about this piece the most is the non-conformist take on a mermaid. stereotypically speaking, mermaids are bright, bubbly fairy-like creatures, whereas you've taken a turn for a darker, mysterious, unknown deep-sea creature. from her glowing red eyes to her webbed hands, she's definitely no "little mermaid." awesome work, moni!

It's a magnificent work, really.
But for some reason...her creepy little fish buddy looking at me...
I don't know why, but it makes me smile.

This is a serious question, as I am curious, what would her top be made of?

What drew me to this piece was her hair o.o

The dark toning and the brightness in her eyes make her so hypnotic. This is truly beautiful. Her tail is even sparking!
