I did this one shortly after "Spring", but I just kept tweaking stuff over time and I figured I would end up never posting it so here it is

Obviously based on the little mermaid, Ariel, except its a slightly more mature version :lol:

It was my first attempt at an underwater scene too, so I was really surprised with how good it turned out

Ive had it as wallpaper since I finished it pretty much, so I kinda got tired of it already lol, the bad part about waiting so long to post stuff

Next up theres another long wave of commissions coming, just so you know

This piece is very pretty, I like it a lot, i love your color theme of cools. Things I would change is her breasts are slightly high on her chest. With her hair i would create more flow to the strands or bunches because water flows gracefully and you have it very sharp and detailed. For her skin, the highlights should look shiny and glossy almost white. Look at pictures of water light reflections and put a little of that into her skin and into the background, you did slightly.
You're very welcome, if you don't think so it's okay just tryin' to help :)

I like how she is topless, not because I'm a perv, but because I think that's how mermaids would actually dress since there are no shirts and they probably haven't even heard of shirts. I also like that her hair is curly, because it would be hard to keep straight hair if you live under the ocean. She's really cute with her freckles and great job on the lighting :) :D

Nice blending from the human waist into the fish body, actually gives the impression that she's a whole being rather than two halves of two things stuck together.
