'They'll sweetly drown you if you get too close.' That is one of my favorite quotes from the movie Peter Pan. I knew I wanted to do a mermaid and this it how it turned out, and it reminded me of that quote. I think it fits perfectly. Done in pencil and colored in photoshop. Suggestions are welcome of course.

Hey, fellow hurricane survivor (Orlando here)! I love this mermaid!! Nice job with her tail texture and her webbed hands. You ought to do a hurricane-themed mermaid pic where she's washed up on the beach, or some benevolent rescuer carries her back to the ocean from a tattered beach. Maybe a two-pane of the above would work out!! Hope all's well up there!

What?! Only ONE COMMENT!? Ahem...anyways. This is so wonderful ^^ I really love it! I especially adore her abdominal area for some reason, don't ask why. I just have some kind of abdominal area fetish I guess..heh. I also love the way you did her scales and the hair, and pretty much everything ^^ She is oh so beautiful. Keep up the great work!

1 Amanda Hell Bunny Thompson replies: "Thank you. I'm glad somebody noticed the scales, they were time consuming, but then again I am a perfectionist when it comes to my art."
