I can just see this pic as a story...

Once upon a time she was an innocent, naive mermaid who was loved by everyone and openly loved all. But soon after a horribly tragic event, her being was consumed with a tainted darkness that she couldn't fight. Her pure, wailing screams echoing in the silence of the ocean as she was transformed into a fallen, darker being of herself. No longer the same mermaid as she once was before, she was soon seen as a monstrous outcast. She chose to abandon her homeland and stay in a place where she sought peace, comfort and solitude in her new shell, though in the end, it only brought her even more pain, loneliness and suffering. 


But anyway, a truly stunning art work. I really like it! Keep up the great work!

Not sure if you gave permission for this, but someone turned this character into stock art.

I bet this is what the little mermaid would look like if Tim Burton, Lars Von Trier and American McGee got their hands on it.
I love this dark gothic style mermaid I must say. Epic (^_^)

I love the dark theme to this. I find the darkness more alluring.

if you add a glowy yellowish orange light right in the upper left corner, it would look like Ariel giving up her voice scene :3
