Underwater by Hanyes Underwater by Hanyes
Not Ariel! Just a random mermaid :)

It took me a while to finish it, but yesterday I sat down and finished most of it (I did the background today).

Thanks to ~E-Stock for the sand texture: [link]

On a side note, I hate mermaids with *knees*. It makes no sense. (granted a half woman, half fish thing makes sense in the first place) . The fish part should not have knees!

You can get a print here if you want one :)

Edit: oh my god, where are all those faves coming from??

It's amazing, but I thought she was on the beach.
If she's underwater, then we have a problem here.
Under water, the hair, no matter what you do, floats and moves freely around you. Her hair is straight down, meaning she's outside the water.

Good catch! I agree, I should have made the hair more floaty. We can pretend there's no strong current and she hasn't moved in a bit.. haha aah, I'll know for next time :) I might go back to fix it, but unlikely, I gotta move on at the moment! 

Thanks for providing feedback!

No worries!
I always think a finished work it's a finished work. I always keep the mistakes in mind, and they aren't in the next drawing I do.

Exactly! It's also hard to go back to older pieces, if you do you'll spend your entire time fixing things you didn't see at first, never doing anything new! Once in a while it's fine (I'm actually in the middle of fixing something right now) but you have to move forward =)

At the same time, if there's a huge mistake (let's say I gave her two left hands!) that's something I would definitely go back to fix! haha

Two left hands? I don't see them...

And yes, you are right. Actually, this is happening to me right now with my last drawing, Noodle, from Gorillaz.
Argh, I hate when this happens.

The detail is just great. The flow of the lines of the tail, combined with those vibrant colors. . . .

I very much like your concept or mermaid here. Very interesting and beautiful. Her fishy features seem nery natural and realistic, for lack of a better adjective.

This mermaid hits on nearly all the elements I find that make the perfect mermaid! I completely agree with you about the 'knees' issue ;) And, I just love the look of all the extra fins on her arms and tail, the webbing between her fingers, and the graceful shape of her tail. Fantastic job!!

No offense but this reminds me of windy from the commercial Windy's. It is a beautiful painting I love the red hair and blue eyes.

Gorgeous work and confirmation. A real mermaid. The only thing that is missing is seeing her gills unless the frills exchange oxygen. Mermaids are created in the image of the Goddess in that they do not have knees, they are one being that is aquatic. You really have captured the look. Love the finning on the arms, the webbed fingers and the iridescent eyes. The necklace really tops it off - mermaids must have their shinies!

Cute! the only improvement I can think of is that I think that it could look more underwater. Like her hair could be all over the place or something.

Hanyes Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I agree, I was aiming to do that but I liked how her hair was at the time. But yeah definitely, the hair could be more underwater-ish :p (I tried with the necklace, if that counts! :D )
