Some days you are the sailor, sometimes, the shark.... sometimes the mermaid. I love the perspective!

That's why you drew this and not what comes after.  (But you still can, if you feel like. it would be interesting!)

Great details!  How I would love to find mermaid pics of the sirens capturing / taking female swimmers.  :happybounce:

That's maybe how they make mermaids! Turning women into them.

We so often search the horizon for what we seek only to ignore what what is at our feet.

(And no, I didn't intend to make poetry or to make that rhyme. :) )

Lovely work!

Is he about to become a merman?

:iconlawrencemann:
LawrenceMann Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
Good question!

To my mind, she's looking after him – watching over him but I'm leaving it open for you the viewer to decide. I don't want to be the one to tell you what to see. Everyone makes up their own story when they look at the picture and the details in it. That's what I love about creating something like this!

Thanks! The masthead in the bottom-left took almost two days and I actually covered most of the detail I had created but if you look then you can still see enough of it so it's all worth it to add to the atmosphere of the piece. It's bits like that which I think make the difference!
