Tropical mermaid. by moni158 Tropical mermaid. by moni158
I haven't done one of these in a while XD

painting practice

download 1200-1600 res screensaver =)

(Refined it a bit, and made the colour tones a bit more rich ;) )

I wanted to give her a very frilly tail, in reality her tail fin would do little to propel her, she could easily use the momentum of the actual tail it self to swim >.< Yes I think about these things.

It's beautiful, and I simply just love the colours! It must have been really hard to make those fish! For me they just turn into weird blobs, but you've made them really great! Love it ~

It's only a good thing that you think about things like how she's going to be able to swim. (Sorry if I double-post this.)

I think it's because you think about these things that your work interests me. Don't be embarrassed. I wish the body had a little more definition to it, but the colors and ethereal nature work well together and make the whole picture feel like something out of a dream. I especially like those few stray hairs that just seem to be going off on their own... that always seems to happen underwater doesn't it. =p
