Naked Mermaid!

I apologize for the nudity, but mermaids don't like wearing clothes. Used two brushes for this, which I think I like. A big fat flat one for the messy over all and then a softer oil to stick in some details. Friday I felt like all my painting practice last week hadn't paid off, but this came together more easily than I expected in about an hour, so yay!

Look at me, drawing Halloween stuff all up to Halloween and then on actual Halloween I drop the ball :)

mermaids can be halloween. technically, can't anything be halloween as long as it's not yourself?

I love it! Great flowing motion in the hair and tail... gives the impression of swirling water... which I'm sure was the intent. Really nice, Sarah.

Great use of the thick brushes, and the cool green tones give it a nice mysterious feel.

I like this painting a lot it's really well painted and the character is cool

Mark Engblom said...

I think it fits for Halloween. There's something a little scary and "other wordly" about Miss Mermaid...as there should be. Disney made Mermaids cute and bubbly....Sarah's reclaiming their ancient, more spooky territory.

Really cool. I love the brushwork, and the way her hair blends back into the water. Excellent colors too.

Yeah, don't sweat the Halloween. My best friend's daughter was a mermaid last year. She had to get carried around a lot.

I hate NUDITY IN MERMAIDS BECAUSE IT IS SO SEXIST.

i HAVE YET TO SEE ANYONE DRAW A MERMAN WITH his balls HANGING OUT. That would be gross by most peoples standards.

so why is a mmmaid with her tits hanging about not sexist?

Please don't apologize for the nudity! The last 2 people to post are idiots. Mermaids are to be nude, they hate clothes, and so do I. Keep up the great work.
