The young Mer-Queen comes to this barren rock to escape from her Kingdom below the waves for a while... as yet, no one else knows where it is :nod:

The entire picture is just amazingly well done. I especially LOVE the reflection, it's definitely worthy of a few worship emoticons. :worship: :worship: :worship:

Very pretty and gorgeous red hair!
I love the pose! Especially the arm gesture that makes her kind of caught in action.

Is it me, or does she look like not quite sitting.
Then how, would a fishtail be sitting anyway?

I love it. Beautiful skies and the water is great!

[Is the crown part of the hair?
I just had to think of Storm and of one of the Elfs from Everquest when I look at her crown-faceplate-thingy.]

She is actually sitting, although she doesn't quite look like it; I wasn't quite happy with the mertail bending where it does to sit, but I couldn't bend it anywhere else. This angle looses a lot of the depth of the scene I guess, it looks so different 90 degrees round :giggle:

Yes the crown is part of her hair :nod: I suddenly realised that hair model would be practical for a mermaid, because she wouldn't need to tie a crown on :D

I know what you mean about the mertail bending. I've been thinking about that several times. How would a fishtail bend? What would be it's skeletton underneath? Do mermaids "sit"? This always looks a bit odd in my opinion.

hehe, this way she doesn't have to worry to swim to fast for her crown! ^_^
