Lava mermaid

By sandara

Badge Awards

An illustration based off my previous concept.
Inspired by a little story from my friend Katie 
"A mermaid wanting to leave the boiling hot depths near the earth's crust and swims up towards the light as her body slowly hardens and it becomes harder to swim.... she beholds the sights and sounds as at last she finally feels free, as she gives out her last breath, she sinks down near the sands she reached and corals bloom on her surface...."

Now that's definitely different and something I have never seen before. Very creative.

I... *cough* lava... this ^^; :heart: The concept, the way the fire is glowing and also the overall composition of color, posing and art style. Now I am imagining a whole lagoon island with a lava pool in its center and fiery creature playing in it, also small volcanoes showing through flat water around it and fire spirits bursting out of them...

Phenomenal. Never thought of a mermaid, a water creature, being made out of a different element. Now we need air mermaids, too!

I love the way the red and oranges of the mermaid contrasts the scene in such a way that you can almost feel the heat. It's such a stunning piece
