Out of reach... by WhistlingWolf13 Out of reach... by WhistlingWolf13
This is a picture I've been working on for a while (during the period in which I also had to work on an important assignment...) And I'm really happy with the result! I love working with underwater pictures, because it's so challenging but fun!! :D It's not perfect, because I'm still an amature when it comes to underwater pictures, but I don't care! It looks more real than the last underwater picture I did, so I'm happy~

I've never really been that fascinated with mermaids, and so this is my first time drawing one. I had much fun drawing this mystical creature, though~ :3 (And since she looked so lonely, I drew her a friend.)

I'd really love some feedback on this! (as usual...) Faves are nice, but comments are so much more inspirational and wonderful! :D

Artwork is mine, do NOT use without my permission!

Amazing lights, especially on her... um... tail(?). I've always loved mermaids (since early childhood) and yours is really pretty one. Colours of her hair and ...tail (? ...really, how should I name that?) are exactly like underwater creatures have or should have. And those etherial stuffs are cute :meow:

By the way, what do you mean by "ethereal stuffs"? ^^;

Those... those... Argh! I have no idea how to call that again! :x Hmm... Silky-like stuff next to her waist, elbows and fin.

You're welcome :D I really enjoy this art so much :heart: It's not so easy to find a really beautiful mermaid art... Usually they're just women with tits and tail fins without magical atmosphere. And thank you too, for helping me with english names :hug:

Oh, those. I have no idea what to call them either, it was just something I added because I felt like something was missing somehow :3

Yeah, it seems to me that a lot of the mermaid-art portrays the creatures as being sexy, alluring women whose looks are only supposed to trick humans into falling in love with them. I wasn't going for that kind of sexual feel, I wanted to show a creature longing for something she cannot reach, a magical, beautiful, but somewhat sad creature... ^^; Don't know if I succeeded or not, but I'm pretty happy with it anyways ^^

Yeah, you surely succeeded :D She's a mystical mythical being with dreams and feelings, not only lusts. That's why I like her so much :D You showed her exactly the way you ment to :3

Uwa, thank you so much for the lovely comment~! :D I'm really really happy that you like it! And seeing as mermaids are half women half fish, it would be... a tail fin, wouldn't it? :3 Thank you, yet again! :D
