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.

Oh I didn't, I was just saying that such a bit mistake I would definitely go back to fix!

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