Mermaid by CrystalCurtis Mermaid by CrystalCurtis
This is an old one from when I was attempting that 30-Day Monster Girl
Challenge over on tumblr. I realized I've never uploaded it here!
Anyways, when I first drew it, I had intended for it to be a gif where her
eyes open and black mystery goo poured out and down her face to
make it all scary and stuff, but no matter how much I tried, it always
came out looking stupid. :T Maybe I'll try another day.

please don't use without my permission, thanks!

I agree, she’s not scary. But I sure like her design! Particularly the gills are a nice touch.

A really beautiful, creative piece.
The gills give her an otherworldly, surreal feel, but you still make her truly becoming. :aww:

She looks beautiful! I love that you've included the gills, they make her look a bit scarier, and more realistic. ^^

Thank you so much! I was hoping she might look a little scary, or maybe like some sort of terror hidden behind cuteness or something. lol Didn't end up exactly how I wanted, but oh well!

I may be wrong, but in your signature is says 'dearth' instead of 'death'? just thought i'd let you know. c:

CrystalCurtis Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes! (: It's intentional. Dearth means "A scarcity or lack of something"~
