First off, the colors and details are stunning. As an artist, you are incredible.

You may be an even better psychologist/symbolist. Case in point: the siren is holding onto a tree, which may be symbolic for the phallus. She's stuck in the phallic phase. Most likely she has an Electra Complex, and her behavior is typical of someone with borderline personality disorder (thus her sadness at a deed that was most likely done after something triggered her.

(for those that don't know what that is, start researching it, boys and girls, so you may avoid falling in love with someone with the very real capability of ripping your heart out while consuming your soul)

Or you can read the lyrics to TOOL's "Stinkfist" for a potentially first-hand narrative.

The man she killed has a sword, a shield, and a white-colored garment on the ground. I take it he's symbolic of the White-Knight-in-Shining-Armor complex? And he's wearing jeans because there are plenty of guys that today, in modern times, want to rescue what appear to be broken girls.

So apparently beautiful, intelligent, and socially-adept women with mental problems also existed for Homer as well us.

Beautiful work.

It is defantly GREATLY detailed which is really good. if you made this on the computer it is so hard but if you drew it....it is still very detailed. WOW!

Guest's picture

Gory, eerily creepy yet done with lots of intricate details. Horrifyingly brilliant, but the moral in the picture itself may be a bit low. I love mythology, and a blood siren sounds great!

it almost looks like he had been beating her up and then she just snapped and tore his guts out. either that or she has been luring men to that spot for ages and when she tried to kill him he fought back.

I absolutely love this painting. The dark mood makes it interesting to look at.

Guest's picture

Wow. You see she is upset for following her nature..........Maybe has some human regret. Nice color working and showing of the human in the monster..... Smile

The legend of the siren comes down to two common stories; the first is that the siren was a mermaid that would lure sailors out into deep waters under the guise of a beautiful maiden, however when a ship would go too close to a siren she would then shapeshift into a large squid and devour all the sailors aboard. The second story is that the siren looked like a woman and would lure men into the woods (usually handsome warriors) where she would copulate with her victim before horrifically devouring them. I like this piece because it goes along with the second story, however, it doesn't merely portray the siren as a cold-hearted deviant but sheds light onto a totally different type of monster. It makes a very dark and sad world a beautiful one, too.

look up "siren"
its kinda like a mermaid but with legs and fins for feet. i think she tore out his heard because sirens are known for seduction and she feels bad bc she loved him but thats what she had to do bc its who she is

Guest's picture

She fell in love with him

Guest's picture

i like chocolate nachos

Guest's picture

is something else after her or is she terrified at what she did anyway nice artwork you got skill.p.s the girl is not looking towards the body she is looking towards the lake

Guest's picture

DUUUUUDE It's all bloody. Cool.

Guest's picture

She looks like she's afraid of herself. Fear is a great place to start in art. Nice job.

Guest's picture

I was searching random artists tonight and came across your notes on how you edited and improved this piece. There wasn't a name so I just had to search 'blood siren' and found thse website. I just want to say that you are so talented, this piece is absolutely exquisite, you can tell such depth of thought and perception of feelings and moral value went into this piece. Outstanding work!! x

Guest's picture

great picture, it was made expertly. and i love the expression on her face, it looks like she is sad at what she does, probably because that is what you made it like. I have seen many great pictures, and this is one of the best i have seen, great details in everything. one question... is he wearing jeans?

Guest's picture

This is an exquisite piece! You can see the intense pain in her eyes and posture. And yet, you know she killed him. Perhaps the need for blood is a curse...or maybe she just gets queasy at the sight of a corpse...

Guest's picture

It is unbeliveable you really capture her feelings. I felt like her when i saw it!

Guest's picture

OH! okay wow ignore that last post I studied the picture more...and wow very gory gaw man but its an awesome pic i'll give ya that!

Guest's picture

Okay what did she do eat someone? I'm not a big fantasy reader unfortunately

Guest's picture

Horribly gory - I love how the raw emotion on her face gets to you - it's just impossible to despise her for what she's done, when it's plain to see how horrified, disgusted & hurt she is. A wonderful creation.

Guest's picture

thats tight!

Art at its best.
