An original picture I contributed to Mermaid Artbook last year. I wanted to make a spread a way simpler comparing to my Witch Artbook one, but it's still me, so.... it took me around 3 weeks to finish. Took forever, I know, but I've studied a lot of information regarding to Ancient Rome as well: like what coins they (citizens) used to have, their animal associating, what cancellations were major/minor and what season these constellations symbolized, how people complimented each other, how punished, how lived, what clothes preferred, what politic situation it was and more and more. For example, do you know that Romans named their daughters after fathers, but with feminine ending? :''3 I've even studied death notes writing tips ^^""" - my mother'd have been shocked for sure if she had found this kind of info in my browser history xddd
Anyway, I drew this spread mostly out of my own curiosity to the mermaid theme, so... yeah. Please, enjoy!
The following page will be uploaded tomorrow! Stay tuned ^//^

The bubbles just feel nostalgic and then the neon beauty admiring human wares in sunken ruins with matching companions.
I love the fashioned head piece, the gloopy eyelashes and gem brow combo, and especially the visible skeletal system. Thanks
for sharing the piece and musical selection
you made that research sound fun ngl
Her colors are so enchanting, almost radioactive. I love the greens and yellows, and how it stands out from the brilliant background of coral and sunken architecture. Gorgeous piece, 3 weeks worth spent.
