Mermaid Joy by iMandarr Mermaid Joy by iMandarr
This is the mermaid that I drew a while back. My boyfriend's aunt saw it and fell in love with it. I decided to reline it and color it with her favorite colors, as well as give her a background. I think it looks a lot better then the rough sketch a did.

This is beautiful! To say this is vibrant would be to call the sun dim! the rush of gold and purple shines brilliantly against the full, dazzling bounty that is this pic's background. :)

Thank you! <3 I love your use of descriptive words, btw. It took me a long time to figure out the colors for her tail, I started with reds, but they didn't work for her, and I loved the contrast of gold on purple.

Thank you!! The background took forever to do, and I did a lot of research on formations or plants and stuff for it. XD

Absolutely gorgeous, the way you colored her body is just amazing.
A very very neat way of hinting scales and continue the detail further on her body without using harsh lines that often make scales look strange on human like skin!
The overal detail ans especially the color on the different background elements are very well done. Where most people would only use darker shades of the base color and grey shadows you did well on using pale light! Light under water is much like sun light in dark dusty rooms, pale~ This is very realistically done! Ialos love her pose and the fact that you used a vertical slim space. Also the scales look illuminated in the sun rays~ And her fins look very satin like <3 Awesome piece!

This is great. The colors are wonderful and luminescent, and the shading gives it a nice sense of dimension. It is not incredibly detailed but the lines you have drawn give it good texture so that it doesn't feel simplistic. Very nice work. :)
