Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-31
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 )

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

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.

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