The only thing that doesn't make much sense is for water creatures to have very long hair. or why hair at all. but it looks nice :P

This is a very beautiful design for mermaids and finally someone who does not draw a typical fishtail! Heart

I may have commented before, or not. Tho, this art is so amazing looking at it never gets old and the concept idea of the other post like this is very interesting and never thought of an Elf race becoming aquatic. Tho, one thing I'm curious. Do you put time into drawing up those markings on them? The colors is natural and something I would have to think into, and the markings are random not symmetric even to others I see. Something that's really challenging I'm still working to achieve.

My favorite of yours thus far.

Do you have other such images of Thalassa?

I've been looking everywhere for artwork to use as character images and yours is the closest I've come to what I want. Everyone else does merfolk or sahuagin. Unfortunately, too, the site I'm on frowns on utilizing artwork whose subjects are au naturale - which also limits my choices. It's almost impossible to find an artist who has created images of deep sea folk that are a perfect mixture of a land-dwelling being and a denizen of the ocean without giving them a tail or making them into some kind of monster.

Your art is beautiful and I highly commend you. Also, for the record, I don't get why so many people cover up merfolk when the whole point of them is to be close to nature. Nice to see you don't defy that logic. =)

Your style is absolutely amazing, and the designs very unique. Everything looks so realistic and... for lack of a better word, natural. XD Is it alright if I feature you in :iconmermafied:'s forum? We're on constant lookout for exotic and practical forms of merfolk, and his is too good to pass up.

Thanks!

You're talking Poser morphs and textures? Sorry, while I did start with a rough 3D rendering on this one, it was a model I built and rendered in Maya. It was untextured; just a basic Lambert shader. The patterns, fins, and everything else was painted.

Great work. Stunning lighting.

Also, I like these sea girls much more than classic mermaids. You know - from man's perspective.
