How absolutely ethereal. The translucency of her fins and scales is exquisite beyond words, and the delicacy of the background matches her perfectly. I love it to death, I really do.

Мне кажется это все потому, что русские просто-напросто очень близко принимают к сердцу всю красоту и трагедию оригинальной истории.. Как то так)

You did a GREAT job on her! Although I personally would have gone more towards giving her more darker colorings like pitch black hair, dark shades of green/blue/purple/grey for the scales, and very pale skin, you did an excellent job at making her look angelic. ;)
