I'm on holiday, so I sat down to finish some work of my own! :D Yet another painting in my 'monstergirls v2' series :) The mermaid, turned Siren. 

The Greek Sirens; (beautiful) half-bird ladies that lure sailors and pirates to their death with their enchanting voices and songs, causing the poor men to shipwreck as they sail closer to find the woman to whom this phenomenal voice would belong.

I mixed it up a little (accidentally) and gave a mermaid this Greek mythological background without knowing it was wrong. It was pointed out that this is in fact a mermaid, and not a siren, but I figured she might as well so the same evil where she climbs on a cliff, utilizes her human vocal cords to shipwreck thirsty sailors and then bathe in the sunken treasures afterward. Because why the hell not :D nothing says I can't make my own versions! I like it better like this anyway xD. 
And this dear Mermaid with the Siren profession treasures both her victims and their belongings a lot. 


--------------- *GASP* ------------
OMG IS THIS MY SECOND DD?! IS IT REALLY?!?! D; 
Thank you so muuuuuch IIngo for the suggestion! :D And anyone else that did but didn't get mentioned in the DD box ;o

This piece is absolutely gorgeous, and really offers a strong mood - she's enjoying herself so, luxuriating in the corpse-gold, and you are left wondering whether it was her fault they died, or if just maybe she is as innocent as her looks suggest. A siren indeed! I must go have a wander through the rest of your gallery now :)

Heyaa~! A little while ago I finally got around to put the Siren up for print on Inprint ^_^ Remembered I should inform you when I did :D
Here it is; www.inprnt.com/gallery/anna_ve…

Unfortunately there's only 2 sizes available due to the file size it was painted in :) So I hope either one of these two sizes will be suitable for your room! (If you still want it that is ^^ been a while since you requested it for print hehehe~)

I really like the pose she's in, to me it says "luxurious" haha! Like nothing in the world could stop her from what she wants to do. Apparently all she wants is to send men to their death!! I also really like the gold of the scales (even though its a siren/mermaid):D (Big Grin) Well done!

Uuuuuugh I wish I could paint like thissss, so many details and I love the water effects :) I can't tell if she's evil and has lured these sailors to their deaths, or if she's just scavenged the wreckage! Interesting to see what everyone would interpret out of it! Congratulations on the DD, it was well deserved ;) :love: :+fav:
