Melancholy Mermaid

Finally completed! I welcome any advice/feedback. Thank you!

**5/14/2014**Skipping the tracing step (don't want to lose the energy of the lines). Waves inspired by Yuko-sama's style.

Here's some info on what inspired the piece : Firstly, I love mermaids, been making them for years (you can google my name and click on images). This is loosley based on the original "The Little Mermaid" story by Hans Christian Andersen, where the mermaid feels the sun and becomes a daughter of the air. She is melancholy because she became this way after having her heart broken, however, the whole piece depicts beauty because from this sad event, she earns her way to rise up to the kingdom of God.
