I had a whole short story typed up for this piece, but I'm to lazy to go and find it. For a sum up, she is THE sea-spirit, the guardian of the sea. She came across a mirror one day and saw how beautiful she was for the first time, and she couldn't stop looking at herself. Eventually, she began ignoring her duties, and the sea died. THE END. Haha, I know, very dark and dreadful, but I had fun with the picture, and I think it came out pretty nice. There are elements in the background that still bug me (such as the clouds >_ By the way, just to clarify, because people keep pointing this out to me, I know that the waves are doing what they would never do in real life. I did this on purpose, to accentuate the feeling of chaos that has come from the mermaids lack of care for anything but herself. Please stop bugging me about the waves. Thanks for looking at my art!
