I thought it would be cool to do a fire mermaid, not that it was very probable. Just thought it would be different.

Your ideas are better than mine! Not fair! 12

Fire mermaid was imaginative, and really new... something which I have never seen before. The fire effect on the tail and hands is just... cool, and also is the fact that she has white hair and not red, which at least I would expect...

:-) Charissa R Carbone replies: "I wanted her hair to kind of be "icy" looking. I really wanted to draw a mermaid, but I didn't want to be generic. Thanks for the comments."

really nice I never saw a fire mermaid and in theorie it wouldnt be possible but in fantasy and on paper everything is possible 1 good work

:-) Charissa R Carbone replies: "I thought it was an interesting idea. Fire able to live w/water. That and I didn't want to draw a regular mermaid like everyone else."

I think she is gorgeous!
I love how you've made the hair white and the conventional orange/red. The fiery tail is awesome - it looks like it's slowly crawling up her body.
Brilliant work! =)
