Hmm...is she leading him to deeper water with the intention of drowning him and then turning him into a merman?

I came here for the vivid blues and greens, and I stayed for the hints at the story behind this. Fantastic work! Visually, the composition is spot-on, and I'm in love with how you portrayed this scene. The seaweed and lily roots in the foreground make it feel like you're peeking in on this scene from in secret, and I love the little blur you've given to the fish to imply their movement.

The mermaid herself is hauntingly beautiful, with a chillingly dark edge - and I love how there's little fish swimming in her hair! The fact that the soldier has dropped his sword - as though he's abandoning his livelihood, and his life, is a really nice touch. It feels to me like he's been almost hypnotised into willingly joining the mermaid into the deep. 

The lighting is spectacular, and you've rendered the surface of the water perfectly. And do I spy a frog swimming on the water's surface, on the mid-right by the lilypads? :love:

Just wonderful, and congrats on the well-deserved DD! :hug:

This is awesome!  Quick question though, is the mermaid welcoming the soldier into her world, or is she trying to lure him in to drown him like a siren? Cuz that makes a big difference on how I respond to the image. =)

ive seen your artwork and I have to say I like the design of it all. the way in how its coloured as well as the imaginative outcome of the work itself. I too am in to this style of artwork and would appreciate it if you could have a look on my page and see what you think of my work. place if you like watch my page as well as comment as it helps a lot. but again very good artwork. I look forward to seeing what you do next.
