Daily Deviation

Given 2007-02-23
Rather unusual look at the mermaid with a nice composition of various colours and their use make say what? by ~ducca a very interesting and outstanding picture. ( Suggested by gotycka and Featured by Anako-ART )

This image looks great!!

However... the hair reminds me of a character at Gaia Online, Mirai, who appeared last year or the year before.

And she sells fish, including mermaids.

You uploaded your art in 2006. Could you be the inspiration for Mirai from Gaia Online?!

.... but I like your design better... WAY better!!

Yep, here you go! I think it's because of her hair and the fish, mostly. :) Plus, Delirium is usually pretty animated, so her expression fits as well.

Actually I love how the tail came out. It just seems to fit with all of the bright colors.

But mostly I love how this picture reminds me of Delirium from Sandman. If only the people on DA could do a makeover on the original artwork. It would be utter bliss.

Anyways, great job!

When I hear you complain about the problems with your work like this it makes me happy, because it makes me think that maybe the problems with my art I stress over is as insignifigant as your problem is :)

No complaints. Fist are VERY shiny indeed and human skin is not known for it's luminance. The scales fit the picture just fine in my opinion. Cool style all your own. I'm diggin' the red eyed fish.

Very nice job in my humble opinion! I really really love her expression. What did the fish say?

Oh yeah. The hair could use a bit of loving from your tablet too, and actually, I quite like the contrast from the tail.
