She is number 03 because she was the third of my attempts at drawing a mermaid for #mermay

So I know #mermay is over but I promised I would at least finish this piece! I figured I could either let it continue to sit on my desktop waiting for me to figure out what more to do with it, or I can just post it for you guys and continue to deal with my shortcomings on my own... I chose the latter. ;) Cheers!

Wow! She’s beautiful!!! I LOVE her Orca-like mammalian looks about her!! Just awesome looking aquatic physique!! Her webbed hands look marvelous; I love the perspective & edge-on view of the fingerwebs of her left hand!!  What a wonderful & lovely mermaid!!

Very nice! I like the design and how her entire body is consistent. Traditional mermaids look odd to me, like two separate creatures graphed together. This looks much more natural.

Thanks, SS! Yeah I was saying below that I was trying to go a bit more porpoise (killer whale) with her than fish. In designs for my book I like the idea that mermaids evolved more like other mammalian sea life than from fish.
