Mermaid by gamera1985 Mermaid by gamera1985
is it something that can be seen as unusual: a mermaid with a diving suit ^^ but well, I really think that it's cute on her.

Hum, some people told me that her eyes were scary... well, I guess it's normal, since I made her to be a predator of the sea. I mean, even if she looks cute, she's the kind who is hunting/fishing her food, and don't hesitate to eat still-alive fishes.

First, I wanted to color her like a tradtionnal mermaid, with her upper part colored like human skin, but then, I thought that it would be better just to make her...hum...wilder! ^^

then, I wanted to add some tattoo on her, to make her more exotic.... some people like it, some people not... the other version exist: [link]

Well, I just hope you like her.

EDIT: She's so cute I did another pic of her, with a little background and story too.

I like her with the tattoos. Makes her seem more interesting.  I don't mind the bodysuit, either. Some mermaids aren't modest.

The tatoo does add a more, attractive, exotic quality. Even to something as exotic as a mermaid.

i like her eyes. She looks like she's startled, or you just told her something amazing. And the wet suit is actually a pretty cool idea.

Well i was going to draw mermaids living in the arctic wearing fur covered wet suits so I thought your wet suit was cool.

I think this version is by-far cooler. And also, the wetsuit brings her more into a timeline that makes sense. I mean, would they always wear shells? XD

Aww, shes not quite scary, she does have a unique feel tothe eyes however. Love the colourscheme and the novelty of a fish in a diving suit. :XD: Adore the patterns though ^^
