Sea Shells and D Shells

I wanted to have some mermaids framing a sign or a compass rose like you might see on an old pirate map, but this is as far as I got. It was fun though. How could mermaids not be fun to draw?

Wonderful, Seth! Absolutely stunning. I love the mix of old school and new school influences. How could mermaids not be fun to draw? They can't? Can they? No!

Love the tails... Great how you worked in a bit of actual fish anatomy with the fins. I am impressed.

Somebody needs to revoke your drawing license Seth. Dang you're good! Those mermaids are dangerous, no wonder so many sailers died at their hands. Really beautiful work my friend.

I really like the Art Nouveau/Mucha like swirls you got in their hair

Merciful heavens... check them out! I went for "cute," and you went for... HELLO! Very nice, Seth. I love the colors. Beautiful sketches of beautiful mermaids. Dang, you're good.

I'll bet those guys are "thanking their lucky stars" to have the job they do. :) I love this! I can't stop looking at this drawing of yours. I must have pulled it up a dozen times today. I love your pattern of angles next to curves. It is so pleasing... and so are they. Georgous!

Wow. I like what you've done with the curves, and the curves, and the other curves.

I love these mermaids! They are so beautiful! Exactly what I picture mermaids to look like! If you ever make a print of this I want a copy! Good job!
