The part when the mermaid gets her tongue sliced out is always pretty neat. There just seems to be a whole lot going on as a gesture - the sacrifice of her voice, the experience of pain, the invasive process of severing it - that bolsters the gruesome element of the moment.

I seem to be all about the experience of pain lately.

Lovely contrast

I love how all the detail in the hair contrast against the flat red. It really makes this picture that more expressive and amazing.

oh wow

her hair is spectacular, the eyes give off a lot of emotion.
Great work, I thought it was just a red light/spirit spilling out of her mouth at first :P Split tongue? Brutal. Great job.
