This is a remake of an old painting ([link]). It is also my entry for the "Draw This Again" competition :D I'm really happy with the new painting, although i wish i had more time to work on it... but so many deadlines... i... can't... *faints*

Mermaids are EVIL! >8D

The picture is very good but I have a question - why all people think sirens were some kind of a mermaid?? Sirens came from Greek mythology and there they're described as half-women half-birds. We have plenty of art, sculptures, etc. depicting them this way.  
I just wanna understand why this image suddenly turned into mermaid-like?

Hi there!

Where can I purchase this Zanariya? My boyfriend is a Merchant Marine Captain and calls me his Siren all the time. We saw this and he loved it.  Please let me know:)

LOVE that your focus and coloring make it so that I clearly will not see the man in the foreground until it is far too late. I am entranced! Great job!

I love the tail! Whoa, i didn't notice that there was a guy there until after like a minute! It's creepy (in a good way) and so pretty!

This is a brilliant piece of artwork. The longer I look at it, the more I adore it.
