This has some really smooth lineart! I'm really liking your character design for her..especially the headdress and earrings while the rest of her is nude. The way her fingers fan out on either side of her shoulders is nice too...it kind of reminds me of wings almost and the fact that she's being modest about her nudity makes me laugh.

I'm really having a hard time finding anything that could be improved about this piece...only thing I could even think about suggesting is maybe adding some land far off on the horizon line to break up that solid line a bit. Other than that...all I can say is keep up the good work :thumbsup:
What do you think?

As far as the line work goes, i find its alittle weak in a few places at the bottom. That just might be the way it scanned in. (I hate that) The companion is well thought out and i love how the clouds where designed. I brake in the panel is a nice touch and the fact you didn't draw the like to show where the tail begins and the back ends. It might be nice if you did a few detail shots, like the hair band on there head. I just love how detailed and beauitful all of your stuff is. :D Much love, hope this helps.

You're welcome! :) Would you mind if I colored her sometime, as long as I credit you? I would understand if you say no, just thought I'd ask. :)

This is so lovely. Her fingers are fanned out so delicately and she has a gorgeous figure. I had to colour her: [link]

Thank you for sharing your work :).

You have such an interesting and fresh take on mermaids. So many people these days draw them exactly the same -like ariel-, I like that you made her something different ^^ She's interesting, unique, and pretty! I also like the cutout effect you did on the border. Sometimes in my own work I have parts of my characters break the borders around them, but I never though of having environment almost become part of the border itself. Lovely!

I love your take on mer-people. The 'box' that she is in works wonderfully with its incomplete lines and I adore the wavy background shapes. <3
