Very elegant. The whole design aspect flows... also, it's nice to see "Actual" traditional art in said category. No digital touch up ..etc.

I hate when people put digital coloring in traditional. I only touch things up if it doesn't scan right or if I ruined it spilling paint all over :)

You're welcome! Yours was one of the first pieces I thought of when I decided to feature merfolk. I just love how you incorporated the koi coloring/markings and the asian theme, all while keeping it very believably mermaid!

This is really quite stunning & I love Mermaids a lot. I've never thought of doing a Mermaid version of a Koi fish. The water and the ginko leaves are quite lovely and elegant. =D
