REally like this piece. The first I encountered the original story was during a class on children's literature. Like how you can see movement even though the scene is stationary.

oh man, your brilliant!

I will be happy with mermaids in any way, but you really give a new fresh look to this fairy tale. You did such a great job with the weightlessness of the prince in the water and how gentle she is sorta catching him, it's just so brilliant!!!

This is lovely, this story is rather depressing though...

Stunning visuals. I especially like the contrast coloring of above and under the water.

This is really incredible. The water feels so.. solid- like an underwater camera. Keep up the lovely work!
