Mermaid's Wisps by tincek-marincek Mermaid's Wisps by tincek-marincek
First mermaid painting...yay :dummy: This is actually really old painting. I started to paint it in August 2012, and yesterday I finally finished it. I guess it's time to submit it ;P Maybe you can see some differences in styles, cuz since then I changed it a lot. And I think that here I painted the sea for first time...I have some drawings with water inside, but not like this. I simply wanted to design a mermaid character and now I did it. I painted whole piece with colors (not B&W :la:) and I used many brushes that it would look like this. I tried to paint this piece as much fantasy as I can...and I tried to paint jellyfishes as light which shows her path to the next mission... :D

Something about her: Her name is Alexis and she's a warrior (assassin) mermaid. She has been trained to fight and to kill others, but she's not that much "mean". She have a magic sword and tattoo on her shoulder... when she starts a new mission then she calls her "wisps" which lead her to her goal. She lives in water and on the ground. When she calls wisps then her sword starts glowing with red light and wisps raise in front of her, showing her path.

I Love this!!!! Question: how do her wings work? I'm a write writing a story about mermaids and I thought about have a few that could fly.

With my stuff, I'm also a biology student, so I'm trying to make my adaptions as biologically realistic as possible, but of course adding a bit of magic here and there for must-haves... (Yeah I talk too much) My point being, make sure the wings aren't feathery (or magic may be necessary), otherwise the mermaid's wings would way too heavy in the water and she'd be shark food, so I suggest leathery batlike wings... Uh... Yeah that's all I wanted to say...
Peace o/
