The Sirens by postapocalypsia The Sirens by postapocalypsia
Another old watercolour that I thought might be fun - originally it was slightly less G rated but I chickened out and re-arranged the hair - what a dill!

This has an almost Marc Davis-like quality;It almost looks like an unrealised scene for Pirates Of The Caribbean. :pirate:

I don't think I know the work of Marc Davis, but I will check it out!
Hey, it might have been fun to see this in Pirates Of The Caribbean =D :)

He was one of the original Disney animators,as well as a designer for many Disney attractions,including Pirates;this work reminded me of one of his pre-productions sketches for that ride.

Aha, what a sweet picture.

The little directing stick and the sailor give this so much character. :D

It was originally done to win over the editors of a US choral singing journal. I had to do a little censoring myself to keep it wholesome. The sailor doesn't seem upset at all does he? =D

Thanks - yes, the sailor doesn't seem too upset by his predicament does he? I guess the mermaids have him under their spell.
