A slightly ominous mermaid, but then I wanted an eerie original feel (this 2nd version is an improved scan)
Maybe it's just me! but I feel that the old stories are the best, and I will be doing more, I will also attempt some stuff of a more original nature, I love fantasy cause there's just no limits to it! Thanks Eliza, and I must say I enjoyed your gallery very much!
I really like the glow and almost ghost like feel to this piece. Wow you have a great feel for color pencil, it's almost looks like a painting. All your stuff has great feeling and you made some of the greatest fairytales/stories come alive. Keep up the beautiful work.
Thanks Howard, great to be complimented by a talented guy like yourself!
wow! very very nice! luminous! and very original
Thank you Anne, as always your comments are precious and inspiring
I meant to comment on this earlier - I really like this mermaid. I like the power of her body juxtaposed with the delicate treatment of the lines and the subtle coloring. Really, really nice!
Cheers Ric! it's nice to be complimented by a mermaid guru like yourself!
Wow! I didn't see this one last time I visited. This is a great piece. You have a great handle on colored pencils. I love the technique and the colors.
Thanks Tom! I must admit it is not the first time my stuff has been mistaken for oils! but I assure you I don't use paint, I do quite a bit of rubbing to blend some colours and I suppose the texture does seem a bit paint like, but essentialy I'm a pencil man!
I would have thought this to be a painting...very classical look, really like the mood you have created here...
Thank you Erika, what a lovely compliment!
Beautiful composition, somehow it has the quality of an ancient silk painting. Beautiful work!
your comments are much appreciated, thank you
Glad you like it May-Lin, thanks for the compliments
Thanks for the compliments Sean, and if I ever meet a mermaid I'll ask the question (Haha! I think I got out of that one)
Oh, I like this very much! This is the kind of picture I'd hang on my wall. The colour combination of the deep red fish and the almost etheral mermaid is beautiful and slightly disturbing.
