Mermaids by evalesco5 Mermaids by evalesco5
I love this circle composition thingy I used in one of my Secret Santa gifts...I'm probably going to overuse it and abuse it. Just to warn you. This was supposed to be a New Year's picture, but...I've admitted defeat, since January has already come and gone, so now it is just a mermaid picture :)
I might make this into a little series of some different fantasy/mythological creatures. I definitely want to do one of unicorns, and I'll find a third one to do. I'm thinking sphinx, but I could be more generic and do dragons...
Anyways, this is just my sort of cutesy interpretation of mermaids. I don't like the idea of them being represented by something strictly half human, then half fish. It's a lot more logical for the fish part to be incorporated more, considering that they do live underwater... I like some of the more creepy concepts I've seen of them, like the ones in the live action Peter Pan, or Harry Potter. But I can't bring myself to do creepy, so here's a prettier version XP
