Mermaid secretary... by AxelMedellin Mermaid secretary... by AxelMedellin
And this is the long overdue last winning entry of the 10k contest, idea by

And I still have the comissioned pieces to do...

Anyway... I would love to spent another day, or two in this one, but then I wouldn't know were to stop, and I've always thought the best drawing is the next one... or that you have to let them go sometime.

So... hope you like it, this was fun to do, me trying to be a serious illustrator.

I love the entire concept. Not to mention, her tentacle hair is pretty cool too.

i just love this image, i can see the mystery in her eyes and her glance is something between arrogance and impertinence with a touch of coldness.

Cool lighting from below effect! She's certainly cute!! I really like how you made her tail scales look 3D and how you added the fins to her forearms and webbing between her fingers.

You know, I just came back for another view and noticed even more detail I had missed before.

That's just wild the way you did her 'hair,' really being membranous tendrils mimicing real hair. That looks so cool! And, are those gills in her hips where her torso joins her tail? Only thing I thought would add to her exotic look would be more extensive fingerwebbing.

Once again, great work!!

Thanks a lot for noticing that too...

I did try the fingerwebbing, but it made her look clumsy...

Sorry it's taken me so long to see this.

Amazing. Ya. I'm down with the squid pen. Tight idea.

Little something you probably didn't know. . .

My first kiss came from a girl who was dressed up as a mermaid. She had glasses as well.

Sorry. I digress.

Thank you for taking my idea and giving it life. This is a HUGE prize.

As for the commision. I would like to have this as a print to hang up in my house. Does that sound fair?

Fair enough... what a story, that of the mermaid girl...

I don't have a print account... Is it ok if I e-mail you the file?

artistic-technology Featured By Owner May 23, 2006
I suppose that would work.

In order for me to get a decent print of it, I'll need to have some sort of written permission from you to have it printed.
