Mermaid. by moni158 Mermaid. by moni158
If you have a crappy monitor like mine then you can use this :eyes:

*the watermark is temporarily due to art theft I will add a better one in PS and then enable downloads again*

I sized it wrong last time and DA got mad at me :iconscaredplz:

My other mermaid pic was a deep sea mermaid, though this one here is better equipped for shallower waters preferably areas with a lot of sea grass or kelp for camouflage.

( I like designing fantasy type creatures and these mermaids are more loosely based on the mythological stories not 'The little mermaid" I really don't like Disney....)

Another great piece from you! I really enjoyed this one especially the lighting, how it shimmers down on the mermaid's hair and tail. Looking at this first I had many thoughts about what it could mean and one of them was how the mermaid could be in danger~

The bubbles are also realistic and I loved the way you made the ocean darker as it slowly went further and further in to the depths of the ocean. ^^

I really can't think of any thing else to improve this piece, perhaps adding different colours such as a light orange or pink to the light, like a sunset?

Looking forward to future art from you! :)
What do you think?

This piece of artwork is completely heart-stopping. The lighting you did coming through the water looks so realistic! The colours you chose work really well together and I'm loving the fushia spots on her body and tail and the blue at her eyes! It made her pop!! I've always loved your art to begin with, the "sketchyness" looks random yet it comes together in a perfect picture!! The fading in the water from green to blue is really cool! But if I had to tell you what you could do to make this piece better, is that I would have liked to see her interacting a bit more with her surroundings, like in your "Underwater" drawing. But over all I would like to say I truly enjoy being a part of your watchers, it makes my day better everytime I see your art.

i love the curves and the details on the skin!
Thank you for letting :iconfantasy-universe: feature your work!
I think that I particularly like the markings on her skin, it makes her stand out from other mermaid images.
