mermaid with stolen heart by Sugil mermaid with stolen heart by Sugil
it isn´t really finish, but i lost my interest (no endurance >_> )... it´s too trashy!

lately i listened any sad fairy storys ...

i haven´t much practice at drawing - but now i have a easel and can more exercise ;) !

(*argh* my english is sooo bad - sorry >_< !)

--------------------------------------------------

if you give your heart a mermaid, you have to dispose of your soul, because mermaids haven´t a human soul ^^ ...i was inspiring by a story by oscar wilde

--------------------------------------------------

(the picture is awful , but i stand at the beginning and i learn (i hope) )

Win. This is one of the few correct representation of a mermaid. They are beautiful man killing sea creatures. They love/desire a man so much they will drag him to his watery grave.

Ah yes....The Fisherman and his Soul. I haven't read it yet, but this should go in as an illustration for his fairy tales.

I enjoy this picture a lot. She looks scared, or maybe possessive.
Anyway, great work!

Beautiful! Mermaids are gloomy creauters, sad but so beautiful. This painting is really well done, I like the water around her, really ghost like.

it looks done to me ^_^

I think the work around the mermaid doesnt need to be touched because it keeps the focus on her and doesnt take away anything and she looks great, it reminds me of paintings like the lady of shallot and of ophelia a little...

The colors you use are always so beautiful; you have a real talent of puting the right ones together to make a beautiful moody piece. Her eyes are the most intrigueing though..

i love this!
the way the blood falls upon her
and the look of emptyness in her face
ou can almost feel the loss of the heart from whomever she took it from
