finally done. i recently found a picture i started two years ago and decided to finish it. i wanted to try drawing an ancient looking mermaid with her pet fish. among my inspirations were fossils, barnacles and deep sea creatures but i also used some ideas based on coral reef life.. maybe she awoke after a long time asleep and swam out to shallow waters for feeding purposes?

The way the gaps in the fish's jawline continue along the body is rather creepy. :D Also, I really like the starfish "mask" so to speak. Nice work.

Looks pretty scary, and also very cool. :3
But tell me- why would she have breasts?
