That is one awesome mermaid. You brought her to life with the way the fins are attached to her skin. more like... they are a part of her. her face is beautiful. her hair really makes her look like she’s in the water. I think you are good at mermaids.

One thing you could do with your mermaids to improve them, is to make them more flexible. For example, if her body was turned more sideways, and more bent ( just so she looks less human )

:-) Jirah Reckinger replies: "YEah, okay, Ill try that sometime 2 thanks"

I really like her hair. Reminds me of those underwater plants, just like a mermaid’s hair should be. I mean has your hair ever looked all smooth and silky when it’s wet 1
