Mermaid Lamnidae by ~DavidGaillet. How can you not appreciate the amount of detail and imagination that went into this piece! From the sleek, vivacious body to the wet wrinkles on an old fisherman's jacket. The expression on the fisherman's faces leads you to wonder did they know what they where fishing for? Or was this something new? Maybe not their idea of a mermaid. ( Featured by KovoWolf )

Hey, i love your work and was wondering if it would be possible for me to use one of your designs for a tattoo, specifically Mermaid Lamnidae. I always want to get an artists permission before i make use of one of their creations, hope this isn't any trouble.

Regards Jack

Ah, I see. Getting straight to the point rather than typing an essay is considered laziness. And what's this about being a self-righteous dork? I'm not understanding.

God, I really fucking despise that habit of saying "too long, didn't read". If you don't read something, how can you think you are legitimated to express an opinion about that?

TL;DR:

So who's the real monster?
There's no one that's better at being the monster than Mother Nature.

Am I the only one who finds that shark-face incredibly cute? Yeah, sure, it is a guhe grin with an impossible number of sharp teeth, but there is no malice in her expression, and looking at her eyes, and at the way she is trying to use her arms to protect herself, you can see the poor thing is scared and doesn't know what those finless, weird creatures want from her.
Heck, for what we know she might have never seen a human being in her life; maybe she has parents and now she is in a living nightmare because she is afraid to never see them again. Probably the humans didn't even need to catch her, they just wanted to have an excuse to go back home, enter the pub and acting badass saying "We slaughtered the horrendous beast!".
So, now, who's the real monster?

Love this one, the atmosphere is caught perfectly, and the shark mermaid look amazingly lifelike, dunno what is scarier, the shark mouth or the shark eyes.

That was my first thought as well. No matter how scary, when something's tied up like that you just wanna set it free.

I love the concept of what she would look like, and the composition. Her face and the transition from human torso to the tail really sell the image for me.
Nice job

Those "freckles" are actually tiny pits used to detect electrical fields.

Well they can see them in classical art... And they see them when they're babies. It's not even displayed in a sexual manner.

I love the rain effect and the lighting! I think the one thing I would change is she looks like she has freckles, and I think it takes away from it.
