My New Necklace by artsangel My New Necklace by artsangel
I tried the technique of first blocking out basic shapes in black & white for this picture. I think it helped tonnes with the contrast.
Besides that, it's always fun to paint something different from my comic characters, I have more freedom :)

The way she's all by herself and enjoying it is fantastic!
In the most mermaid paintings the mermaids only look seductive - always playing with the observer.
And this is something different. Well done!

Nope, just an entirely random idea. Not familiar with that story.

Fabulous!! :D I always love how everyone has their own rendition of a mermaid, and this is absolutely flawless. I love how her hair is a big mess but is so perfect at the same time.

Wonderful job, you have a great eye for both the human anatomy and seeing beauty in all things. :)
