Love the detail, especially the folds on the clothes and the hair of both characters. it is so perfect , this critique may not be the best or what you wanted but I am still a student and still learning. you are on of my inspirations and I love all your artwork. how do you draw hands so good? sorry if this wasn't the critique you were looking for , but keep up the good work and keep inspiring artists like myself. (sorry if there are a lot of spelling errors, I"m not the best typer. best wishes my friend and continue to amaze )

I think I will forever be in love with the way you use colors. I've never been big on mermaids, but the way you draw them is so unique - they look eerie and vulnerable and lovely all at the same time. The lighting in this piece is great - maybe a little harsh for candlelight, but good all the same. The construct of this bathroom or sauna or whatever it's supposed to be is accurate, and the grain on the wood paneling is gorgeous. I'm guessing his left foot has 5 toes and one is just hiding, but I'm not sure. Feet are always the killer for me. Another great piece! Makes me want to write a scene for it. Thank you for sharing and opening it up for critique. Keep up the good work :)

I absolutely love this! The candles are such a wonderful addition that could so easily have been opted out? It gives a really interesting lighting situation. Besides the fact that I LOVE mermaids, I loved the sort of "nitty gritty life" that comes across in this. It's not all sea horses and water lilies out there! Mermaids have down days too especially when you get mop haired brunette smokers in the mix. Fantastic and can't wait to hopefully see other companion drawings! Fish Blob

Wow. I just discovered this piece, though I've been watching you for a while now... x) I love it. I don't even know these characters and I don't know the story behind them, still I can imagine one very easily. The atmosphere is very touching. I really like the way it 'breaks' the myth to see a mermaid in a bathtub, and how the candles could both express something romantic and something too weak to last... Their faces say a lot... Man, this is art.

dude you should totally add a foggy atmosphere dim some lights in the corners and make them look warmer on reflections and source , also experimenting with it and turning it to a painting with more realistic faces and textures could have an amazing result .

Creo que incluso si están involucrados en una relación que debería dejarla libre , el amor le hace un poco de eso. O tal vez puede ser devuelto al mar y puede llegar a convertirse en un tritón , como en el Splash película de la década de 1980 . Doble problema para todo alrededor . Estoy seguro de que llegar a una muy buena historia. Bien hecho.

Now I'm just really curious what the story is with this mermaid. The green/red tones work beautifully together and makes it look more dramatic.
I'm getting popcorn for the third piece in this series if and when it comes out. : O

Todavía estoy armando la historia detrás, tengo vagas ideas y todas sueltas jaja
pero más o menos, se supone que ella decidió ir a vivir con él aún sabiendo que, por su propia protección, estaría siempre escondida de los otros humanos. Sin salir, en una casa, la casa de él, lejos del mar. Y él.. bueno, es un tipo complicado. Basicamente se trata de una serie de decisiones que llevaron a los dos a estar en problemas. Se quieren, pero no son felices, los secretos y el estrés en la relación los consumen. Al final, pasan miles de cosas y él la abandona y ella queda estancada en la bañera de la casa, sin poder hacer nada, porque nadie más sabía que ella estaba ahí. No se si muere o no, jajaj algo asi :P
es solo la idea original que necesita muuchos cambios

Also are these guys friends or lovers or mortal enemies? From the expressions you can't even tell.
