Artist's Statement

First of all, I'm really sorry for being so inactive for so long, I still won't be able to reply to all the comments and to comment on your work since I'm actually very very busy (working for comics and other professional works) so please send me a note if you want me to comment on your work, crit or if you have an important question :hug:

Mermaids have been lots of times described as beautiful and kind creatures. But that's not the way they are described in mythology. They are said to be crual winged creatures that turned into a crual mix between human beings and fish. They were singing to attract sailors then they eat them.
This is my own version of a mermaid/siren, a deep sea creature using photophore to attract preys.
Photoshop CS and a wacom intuos 3A4
No reference used (only doing some google search to see how the photophore of the anglerfish looks like) so there must be lots of issues but I like it as it is now Crits are very welcome though

Thanks for your help on the WIP I had posted. I've read all your comments and tried the suggestions (the scales didn't work at all though) but I've not had time to reply to your comments. I'll try to do it as soon as possible :) Thank you very much once again, I really appreciate your help!

Please FULL-VIEW for all details! Everything is lost in the preview :(
