STOP SOPA 2014!
Hello! I would like to notify you that I've featured you on my surreal and abstract art blog over on Tumblr. Your work really fits the theme, and you can see it on artagainstsociety.tumblr.com. Of course, I have given you credit and linked to your page. If for any reason you don't want it published any longer, just send me a message and I'll delete it pronto. Thanks, and congratulations! Your art is beautiful. Please note: If you don't see your art right away on my blog, it is probably still in the queue and has yet to be posted.
I love everything about it! I'd been wanting to do something like this, a non-human looking mermaid, but it's be nowhere near as awesome as this! I love the way the head is shaped, and her face and eyes! It's just awesome!
Finally, a mermaid with gills! I've always wondered how they got oxygen into their bodies!
I also love the octopus tail - I have a thing for the more unusual tails out there, there are more things in the deep than fish to use for inspiration.
I also love how she isn't a human-aquatic animal hybrid. She looks completely unique, and perfectly at home in the environment you've drawn.
Mermaid is from the Old English words 'mere' (meaning sea) and 'maid' (meaning girl/young woman). So, as long as there is a female creature of the sea, that looks reasonably maid-ish, I don't see the problem with the type of tail.
Personally, I love to see some individuality in artwork! Seeing a variant of the same image over and over gets tiresome! Keep the unique coming! Perhaps a male version, or even a baby one! I'd love to see what a little one of these looks like!
Keep up the great work!
