I wanted something new...for ME anyway. I've never seen a indian/african-ish mermaid. Black on "black" is a no brainer cliche to me, but I rarely see it. So I gave myself a pass. And I rarely, if ever, do mermaids this close to the western traditional versions.

story time/
The last time I did a mermaid this close to the traditional western depiction was in kindergarden or pre-school (can't remember exactly, but I know I was but 5 or 6).

I do remember the image i did though: it was a bunch of mermaid who were killing sailers for polluting their home. I remember I drew mermaids with a red tail who were the "executioners". They har long as red nails. the sailer had cuts and were bleeding and such to.

I wish I still had it somewhere.
/story time

Another thing...this is the first intentional eye candy I did completely for myself. I tried for a merman who (if I was a more trusting person, and if I was a man), that I would fall for if I was a pirate or sailer in the old/ancient days.

AND, I tried taking a feminine-type pose and making it masculine.

Gorgeous. All the details are just amazing. Each time I look I find something else I really love. the scars, the transparent fins, the subtle scale markings, that everything!
