I really like my mermaid, although I'm not incredibly happy with her face, nor the way she scanned.

I like the eel. He has a great smile and curve.

Hello, I am 13 and am very much an artist with amazing art in galleries. I say you have talent and very much of it, only i was a little disapointed becuase mermaids are lively and vigerous, she looks, well i can't say droopy because she is straight but, it confuses me honestly. I love her hair and the shading, it is done well and clean but depression lurks around me when i study it. I'm sorry if offended you in any way, that is only my opinion.

um, no.
dont like. want to know why, well...
as someone said before, it is VERY out of proportion, i would say the eel is better then the mermaid. Sleeping, well, supposed top be ralxed, not rigid. And peaceful comes to mind with that word.
im sorry, ill stop. its just not my thing.

hey, I like the drawing it is very well drawn and looks like you spend a lot of time on it. THe shading makes it look realistic. I don't think it is too much out of proportion the tail, in my opinion, is supposed to be longer than the upper body, but the upper part of her body is alittle bit scrunched up. it is very beautiful and she does look alseep. I love the tail, it looks great, you did a good job!

She is truly a mermaid, but I think she looks too stiff. mErmaids are loose and flowing, I think her tail should curve a little like the eel. (which is very very cool. I would love to see more mermaids.

The mermaid needs a little more movement. The hair though is nice and flowly like it should be under water.
