This is a commission for the exceptionally patient :iconsirenabonita:!

This was an enjoyable project to work on. Lotta fun. *sirenabonita had a specific model in mind to base the mermaid off of, so the process started very similar to the morrigan image (read: worked very closely with a ref image).

This image took a bit longer to push out than I intended, so for that, I must take a moment to thank *sirenabonita for being so patient with me through the process!

If I were that diver, no matter how attractive that mermaid is... I don't trust her!

The two gold coins that she's holding remind me of the coins that the dead have to give to Charon - the ferryman from the world of the dead - so that mermaid reminds DANGER and DEATH to me.  ¬.¬

Heh, that's an interesting thought. Logically, I'd be inclined to agree with you not to trust her. It does seem suspicious. However, being an easily susceptible male, I'm pretty sure I'd be doomed long before any rational logic came to pass. )-:

Amazing! I love mermaids, and she is fabulous! Awesome image with the light from above, the air bubbles, and all the fish circling. Wow. I know this is a commission, but I sure hope you choose to do more mermaids in the future!
