First of all, I must say, amazing, wonderful work. Truly this piece is done so professionally well and really has a powerful beautiful fantasy feel about it. It has a certain magic about it and I love the way you made her hair look just right and the water so fresh, inviting and yet magical. The only thing I saw that might be a teeny bit off, is the crab that is right at the tide; it looks like his left-hand pincers may need to be a little bit more into the water. Overlooking the minor detail, this piece is definitely a winner and has something spectacularly captivating about it. Congratulations. Well done indeed! :clap:

Love the vivid colors in this--the bright water, the glowing sand, her red-orange hair... And interesting design for her fins, both on her arms and on her hips! The ones on her arms are almost like butterfly wings :)

This is beautiful, but just for my personal tastes I would like it better if the composition were asymmetrically balanced. The water and land meet right in the center, her center line at the point between her breasts is at the center of the image. I think a symmetrical balance is appealing to most western people, but it is more static and less dynamic, but that, again, is just my opinion. In this image I would like to see more of the picture on the side of her hair, and more of the water side, with maybe some small item of interest in the larger area to make a contrast or to compliment your main subject. The concept is sort of like being on a see-saw with someone a lot bigger than you: all you need is a longer area of the lever on your side to make an asymmetrical balance. Please excuse me if you know all of this already.
