Awesome, Jas. I remember you old mermaid entry (you had one similar to this, right?) but this is definitely a step up. Awesome halftone work, it looks great =) I know you're not too fond of the halftone, but you did a fantastic job!

I think you would have been OK with the red although this looks good too.

Thanks Jesse! I did have a mermaid/moby homeskillet entry that is similar, but different style-wise. Glad you think this is a step up! And thanks on the halftones - I'm not the most confident using them, but I did like the watery effect I kinda got with them! =)

Yeah I agree... but since I was thinking about blue anyway I tried it and liked it, plus then realized I was one color over, so it worked out! Thanks for saying so, appreciate it.

Thank you Spiritgreen, and glad you like the water FX that I muddled through;)
PS. And thanks for the post in the PD thread too.

I really love the changes to the hair, Jasneko! I like this version a lot, very pretty! Also, mermaids are timeless lore. There's so many rich legends about them. Love! +1

Aw thanks bass! The main aim of this one is just that - to be pretty;) Glad you like the hair changes, and I know what you mean... I like the mysticism and magic that seems to surround mermaids/ merstories.
