Pirate Treasure by cldart Pirate Treasure by cldart
Yay, mermaids and pirates..arrrrrr!!!

I have two more ideas for mermaid pics, then I might give them a rest. I hate to be one of those people who keep saying the scanner ruined it, blah blah, but it did kill some of the shading and much detail. This is graphite on bristol, size is 12"x9".

I love the detail in this and the shading is amazing! The treasure chest is amazingly done, so realistic and yet it has that old, pirate-story feel about it...and the jellyfish must be one of the greatest ideas I've seen in a while! The way you did the mermaid is great too, though I personally find her face a bit too realistic and perhaps a tad wide for a mermaid..but that's only my view of them and yours is definitely interesting.:nod: The frame is so pretty though, my favourite part along with the chest. :ahoy:

Thank you very much! From drawing these mermaids I find that people have a set idea of what mermaids should look like, and I get critized (good and bad) so much because I try to make their anatomy slightly different so they just seem a bit more nonhuman or ethereal like...I love hearing everyone's opinions! :-) :pirate: :ahoy:

Heh, you're right about those preset ideas! But the hair is so much like a mermaid would have in my mind, that I almost expected the rest to be like it :D And I thought it's a quite realistic mermaid, btw. :shrug: Oh, and is that sand that you're drawing on all of them? Cause if so, I love the idea and it looks great! :boing:
