An unfortunate merman being eaten alive by a swarm of piranhas. :noes:

I wanted to draw something gratuitously gory, yet somewhat unique and fantastical.

The title is by mintaka on DW haha. :meow:

Nooooooo! Swim away! Love the vivid colors and deep black lines. Reminds me of a Marvel comic page.
Although, he does not look as though he is in that much pain, but overall this is really amazing!

Seriously though, this is one of my favorites from you.  It has the most amazing color pallet, and the scene is both terrifying and intriguing.  It's a beautiful peace of artwork, everything drawn out gorgeous with an over-the-top imaginative theme and colorization.  Truly though, it sends chills thinking about the pain of being eaten alive by piranha.  Such a gruesome way to go, but I cannot help but LOVE this piece!! (lol, but what can I say XD  I'm a sick f*ck who loves gore, so it's no surprise to me anyway)

I was worried it might look silly, so I tried to make him look more like he was still in shock.

I think fish (or fish people) aren't very expressive when they are in pain. After all, a fish with a hook through its mouth has the same expression as a fish swimming happily in the water.

In any case, you're right that he doesn't look pained enough. I will try to increase the visible pain for fellow appreciators of sadistic art in the future. <3

I really like the composition on this, like it was really striking in the thumbnail before I even knew what it was~ Also I love the fishies, they're so happy to eat him XD

I know a bunch of my thumbnails (compositions?) are awkward, so it's something I've been trying to work on lately! Thanks so much!! :blush:
