Birth of a Mermaid by sakimichan Birth of a Mermaid by sakimichan
I liked some of the idea given by some of you on my precious work : ) I decided to continue the painting. The idea was that mermaids are born from stone drops, they feed on oranges.
I tried to give the adult mermaids slight different features, like the serpents tails and different ears, just to be more various.
-The new born is confused and lose, she's wondering who the other are XD

Really attractive schematic colorful games, rather a huge reminder for people into the sort of computer game which could give love or hope - yet probably a little more yellow, in some areas, however, such an aura also befits the "greatness of mermaid" atmosphere

Hahaha! the newborn is like "WTF?" to the older mermaids. I like that concept that they feed from oranges.

I love how the attention of the looker automatically goes to the mermaid in the middle because she's a different, brighter color and the other mermaid's eyes are covered. Another fine piece.

They all look the same age to me. Also, I find it awkward that the "newborn" has jewelry on when she has yet to make any real contact with the outside world.

It seems to be like fairies, one being born for every baby's first laugh (if I recall). They emerge from flowers, or other various flora, completely mature but are still technically "newborns". :)

Ah, you seem to have made some bad anatomy mistakes. Humans don't actually have fish tails, they have legs. Check out my drawing for reference. Not bad for a beginner though.

"Ah, you seem to have made some bad anatomy mistakes. Humans don't actually have fish tails, they have legs"

Well, it seems like you're confused. In this picture they are not humans. They are mermaids. Which is precisly the reason they have fish tails and not legs.

So anatomy-wise, this is correct. And as mytical creatures, every artist/writer/person, has their right to create their own version (anatomy wise and concept) of what a mermaid may look like and where they come from.

This artist is a professional, drawing techinque-wise and style, this person as waaaaaaaaay more practiced than you or me... for you to just simply label this artist as "beginner". (LOL cocky much?!)

So please think twice before going around and calling people stupid.
