Sailor Sailor, hear my voice,
listen to my sweet melody,
Sailor Sailor, you have no choice,
feel the wrath of the sea.

Wow... This was so much fun to work on. I started it at midnight, when that idea came to my head and I just had to draw it! ^^ It took me about 15 hours in total. I really like how it turned out! :D Hope you like it too! :heart:

I used this stock image: [link] by :icontwiggxstock: (I love that woman's look so much, haha xD) as a reference for the siren, but the whole picture is hand drawn.

-- Critiques, comments and faves are really really hughly appreciated!! :la: :hug: :heart: --

Absolutely astonishing! Now this is art :dummy: Her eyes are very mesmerizing and draw a lot of the attention, very true to the little poem in the decription :)
There can be no doubt that she's a mermaid, I love how you did her and all the details.
The overall composition is very great. I love the fish and the starfish, they look great and gives a 3D feeling of this picture. I absolutely love the starfish that's draped on her shoulders, never seen that detail before :)
The colours are well chosen, and very fit for the ocean and gives a good contrast.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
1 out of 1 deviants thought this was fair.

The first word that came to me when looking at this is "mesmerising." There seems to be so much feeling packed into her lovely eyes. They give off an imperious aura suggestive of the title. Not just her eyes, but I find that her face gives this work most of its magic: the smooth textures of her skin and the crisp lines of her markings are stunning. The coral in her hair is a very nice touch, balancing out the overall cool colours of the underwater scene.

While I do enjoy the splashes of deep red here and there, I think the intensity of the colour is a little overpowering. I only find this odd because much of the piece is bathed in an almost-mystical blue-green light. Another thing, I found was that the fish's anatomy feels off since the fins of one side of its body look a lot bigger than the other.

This is an great piece of work that any digital artist should be proud of. Excellent job!
