Mermaid by namesjames Mermaid by namesjames

I've wanted to paint a Mermaid for a while, something with a bit of a dark feel to it. Rocks, water, flesh, metal, this has all the stuff I've love to paint in it.

Digital (Photoshop)

Did anybody notice that the fingernails of her left hand are painted, while the ones of her right are not?

I love how her webby fishy fin is splayed out on the rock & drooping over the edge! She'd look exotic with webbing between her fingers, too!!  She looks stunning...what a beauty! Your details in her tail scales is just fantastic!!  Love your mermaids!!

Ah, that cunningly placed locks of hair just behind her nipples!
Fantastic work & reminds me a lot of a similar piece from Daniel R. Horne.
