Chibithology - Mermaid Picture

The Mermaid


A mermaid is a mythological aquatic creature with a female human head and torso and the tail of an aquatic animal such as a fish or dolphin.
[They] would sometimes sing to people and gods and enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to walk off the deck or run their ships aground.

Artist's comments

I am well aware of the retarded grey-ness in the background. When I scanned it, it came out lopsided. When I rotated it to fix it, it left massive gaping areas of transparency, so I filled it in. Unfortunately, it didn't match.

She's meant to be swimming through the (apparently invisible) water, tempting someone along behind her.

I really like how her hair flowed in this pic. The colour scheme I'm not so proud of, but with only twelve pencils I think I did well.
