I'm not sure, but is this in the Society of Illustrators? If so, I had no idea I was already following the artist on DA!

Jesus Christ holy crap expletives upon expletives. 

There's nothing I can say that doesn't contradict your dislike of gross schmoopy praise.  But this is fucking great.  Keep going with oils, man, this shit is your destiny.

Very nice color strokes in the overly white and green areas.

just wanted to note: I love how slippery you've managed to make this little mermaid (oh gosh, please tell me im right, and that this IS infact a little mermaid interpretation!? but with a more modern boat, yes?) look, and with the blueish purple, opal-like undertones of color on her skin/scales/whatevers! I also like how you've blended the body to look like a smooth transition between the body and fin, yet you see a slight indentation where her legs will form.

Ohohoho, pretty. I tried oils a few weeks ago, but I don't really have a great space to put the paintings as they dry. Derpy cat, toxic things, and all.

Gorgeous colours, as always. I really like the nice little warm details.

your gouache influence translates well to oil. this reminds me of jeff jones' mermaids.

Depth of field superb, liner incredible, color of her upper body and proportions stunning... I just HATE 'knees' in mermaid's tails, but, oh, heck, it's a favorite, it's just too good not to be.

Wow, this is really beautiful! The strokes are lovely, and the subject seems quite melancholy. Fantastic!
