A pic my mother asked me to do, there will most likely be some touch ups but I thought I would post if for suggestions and cc ^^

Nice idea. I guess even a mermaid can do this as a way to enjoy the sun.

It's so cute yet I'm over thinking it at the same time.
Did she buy the ice cream on the beach?
How did she make it to the ice cream parlor and back to her towel without losing it?
Did she bring it with her from the ocean?
None of it's wet.

Overall, the colors are stunning, the mermaid is beautiful...she's so attention drawing that landscape seems too open!
She shoreline is lovely, this is a cute image.

The water and her tail are very good but to the right you need to add something in...

I really like this, I think it's cute. The tail is a bit off, looks really thin to me, but all in all it's great!

Really cute! I love the idea, and it's really well done. Good job on the fins and the rest of her. The coloring is great, and the water's awesome. I love how you managed to keep the transparent feel to it, while still showing that it's there. It's really wonderful.

Late comment I know, but just getting around to looking at Deviantart... I really like how this turned out, only suggestion is that the lower half of her tail is quite thin, only about the width of one leg. Mermaid's fins usually are the width of two legs that come to the point at the fin, seems to be that way anyways. Just looking at it, if I imagine her stretching her fin straight, it might look strange having this thin lower half. Could definitely be a stylization thing too which I understand. :)

I know a lot of people mention that, a few times I brought it back up to re work but I have yet to get something that looks right. Normally I find leaving them along for a few months can sometimes help me see the flaws, like when i edited the Avalon pic and the witch pic a while back ^^ Thanks for the cc though, there seems to be a lack of it here lately :(

Don't know where to even start on this one. The way you colored the rocks and tail and your overall color choices are especially delicious ^^

Really good, fun summer pic.
