The Blue Mermaid Picture

This is my entry for the Skribble contest!

This is the first time I have taken part in a competition organised by Deviant Art so I hope it turns out well. No matter what the result is, I have enjoyed myself drawing this entry 8D

It was difficult to pick the colour for the mermaid because I have never believed that mermaids have the skin colour of humans. (The Little Mermaid is a rather...incorrectrepresentation of mermaids)

But I eventually chose blue schemes for the Mermaid because it would blend well with the surroundings.

In case you are wondering what is this Mermaid thing all about, well, I initially wanted to portray mermaids as sirens in disguise (even though they are absolutely two different types of mythological creatures) but apparently, the "supposed-to-be-siren" had a gentler look on her, hence I decided to just make her a mermaid.

The sapphire crown on her represents aqua royalty (I have no idea what this term is because I just made it up xD). And the red "orb-like" thing she is holding is actually a mermaid embryo.

She's the leader of the shoal(?) of ice mermaids and recently gave birth to a little mermaid embryo which she plans to take good care of.
