ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ Nice!

is there any way i could pay you to just make more mermaids

Mermaids are surely the stuff of sweet dreams :3

Of all the mythical creatures that the human mind has created, the mermaids are the ones that have truly fascinated me. Going from the usual friendly despiction, to the darker one where they use their beautiful voices to bewitch and capture men, I generally like both versions of this creature, but I honestly prefer the first one, thanks to The Little Mermaid (now that I think of it, this cutie reminds me of Ariel).

I'm pleased to see that a talented artist liie SLC has developed and submitted their despiction of a mermaid. Like all of their previous works, this one features a mesmerizing color palette, exquisite detail on the character design... oh, and a sexy feel to it, too! I just hope that this mermaid is one of the nice ones, and not one of the evil ones.

My favorite thing about this entry is the mermaid herself. She looks absolutely stunning. I really like how you modeled her body: her hair flows nicely, giving the viewer the sensation that the girl is truly underwater (the small star-hair decorations are also a cute, welcome detail). Her facial expression is delightful. I love how it seems as if the mer-babe was directly looking at us, the viewer. As always, the eyes are wonderfully created; I particularly like the purple-pink irises. They're stunning. I also like how you crafted her torso: her arms are long, nicely modeled and colored; while her breasts and hips and undeniably sexy. I also like how you detailed her midriff; it makes the mer-babe more eye-popping. Last but not least, the fin: I love how you detailed it as if she was posing for the artist; her fin gives the impression as if she was crossing her legs. The little scales scattered around it are wonderful. Details like those are what make this picture so fun to see!

The color palette is simply beautiful. I love the wide variety of colors that it has. Blue, purple, orange, green, yellow and white. Neither of the colors distracts from the other ones, and they all mash up masterfully. I also love the lightning: the sunlight glistening through the ocean waves is a striking detail. It only makes this piece of art more wholesome to the eye.

Last but not least; the ambience and background. This illustration features what I think is one of the most detailed backgrounds you have made. I love how it plays along with the mermaid; the mer-babe is the image's main focus, but the ambient only makes the picture more eye-catching. I love the little fishes that roam in the background, the algae (which features several different colors), the sand on which the mermaid is sitting on, and the corals that are standing tall. On a few words; the level of detail and dedication is astounding.

SLC, you have just delivered a one-of-a-kind illustration. It is completly beautiful; I seriously believe that this is one of your very best. Will we see more of this bombshell? I would love to!

Congratulations SLC. This entry is breathtaking.
