Evil Siren

In the classic version of the siren, they were depicted as half bird, half woman. but after searching, i found that they were also depicted as evil versions of the mermaid, set out to lure sailors to their deaths.i took the concept of the siren and i made it my own. instead of a lovely maiden, i reflected their evil nature in their looks.

Please let me know what you think of this one. It won 2nd place in the pxleyes water creature contest this week (contest just ended today).

oh yeah. NOT STOCK. :D art. don't steal.

Amazing. No more are mermaids innocent little fishfolk, but in fact, the true nature of a siren, an evil creature with a deadly song. Great depiction.

Thank you! Its one of my favorite pieces personally. I really just wanted something different entirely when it came to an underwater creature.

And I think I have finally found a good explanation why I won't go scuba diving anytime soon. Great work.. I love the dark mood you bring!

:D you are so sweet! :giggle: thank you so very much!
and yeah, you know..i've got a fear of deep water. anything over my head and i kinda freak out. I don't know why, but...its been that way since i was a kid. :P

Aww but we all have our pre-installed fears I think. I can't stand anything around my neck: I panic immediately when I wear a shirt that's too tight even. Dunno why, and it's been like that since my shildhood as well.. so it's something that's just *in* us.

I'll do the swimming in that case, you can wear my turtlenecks?
:heart: :tighthug:

hrrmmm you can swim all you want...but... i don't like turtlenecks either. perhaps i'll bring scissors and cut the necks off of them :D then we can both wear them. :giggle:

She's definitely a siren. I've always heard that sirens were the evil counterparts to mermaids while harpy's were the half bird, half woman. You did a wonderful job with her!
