Hey there!

This is absolutely gorgeous, first of all <3

Second, my best friend has been begging me to draw her a tattoo, and this essentially fits the model (just with a different style for the fins, hair, coloring, little details), so I used your drawing for the base. I fully intend to credit this piece of art, but I just wanted to let you know!!

You should check out the Waterfire series, it's set in a world of mermaids and there's a character who's tail resembles a Koi tail like this! Very well done love!

I remember this picture. I use to have this as my background in middle school on my boost mobile flip phone. Good times. I love this pic because it's so serene and relaxing just by looking at it. It's like you can jump in and swim with her
