Shiver by navate Shiver by navate
Portfolio piece I finished for my shows at World Fantasy Con and IlluXcon last month.

Mermaids with a swarm of sealife is starting to become a repeating theme for me...

Beautiful.  A mermaid that is not a glamor model in sequined leggings.  Just naturally beautiful in an inhuman way.

Sharks, nooooo. Nooo. No sharks. NO.

Willies aside, great painting. The composition is fabulous, and the anatomy on both the sharks and the mer is wonderful, especially the detail in her hands. I agree with one of the comments above that a bit more defused light would make it look a little deeper under water, though. Right now they appear a little bit close to the surface to have such a powerful light source.

Buh. Creepy eyes everywhere.

Super frickin' creepy. Awesome circular composition. Great form and figure with the black eyes, with the colors highlighting the facial anatomy. Nice. I love it.

I'm of the philosophy that mermaids would not have breasts.

It was more about the strong arms ;) But, I'm glad that you responded and specified the mermaid's gender :rose:

Sealife continues to be an inspiration for me as well.
You really nailed the composition here! I like the colours as well.
You could have made the light a little more scattered and added some floaty bits
to have stronger underwater look. Great work!

Wow love the lightning and details. They look wet, like they're underwater. And it's also very creepy haha, as if she (?) is summoning her sharks to do her bidding.
