I imagine what a Mermaid from the deepest parts of the oceans where the sunlight never reaches might look like... (ballpoint pen, as always)

This is stunning! I love the shading and texture to the peice, plus the lighting. It's quite an imaginative creation.

This Rocks!!!!!

Whoa! I like that it's different from the normal cliche. Nice job on the detail, those deep sea types are scary!

Hooo, that's both very cool and terrifying! The mouth is incredible, your shading is really impressive too. It's an angler fish, or similar, right? If so, nice job on the teeth, it's a really good mix of fish and human.

Whoa, awesome! Someone who has understand that mermaids ain't nice to look upon! I mean, how can a creature half-part fish and half-part human look something else than hideous, since fish's so dang ugly? Very nice idea, though.

Creepy, in a good way.

Dude, angler fish are the creepiest freaking things in the world... and this is the funniest freaking thing in the woods! It’s absolutely perfect.

AHH! I HAVE A TAIL! (Sorry! It just looks like it just discovered its tail or something. Very cool take on mermaids. I love your stuff.)
