Mermaid by RebeccaLongArt Mermaid by RebeccaLongArt
I've been wanting to do a mermaid for a long time :D

For :iconmanip-contest: Down Under Contest. I really ended up sort of wanting to make something else that wasn't a mermaid for this contest :P

I loooove this work, it's fantastic and beautiful, love the concept, perfectly done ( except maybe for too many bubbles or they maybe could be in different sizes.)

i really love this piece Becca. the color balance and the cutting out of your stock and the blending turned out wonderful. the only thing i see that needs some help are the bubbles. i too have this same problem with having things like butterflies all the same. first i would make the bubbles smaller and repeat the bubbles smaller to the middle ground and even smaller on background and then blur them accordingly. maybe almost make the bubbles disappear in the background. maybe not use so many bubbles. maybe sometime i will do a mermaid too. i keep saying i'm going to do one and then stop. hahaha i think you may have inspired me. :heart:

There's obviously a story behind this, but one which we're meant to interpret. Lovely choice of stocks.

glad you think so - I'm starting to feel quite unoriginal now that I see everyone else has done mermaids.
