Default Lil Mermaid WIP

Hi,

Here is a mermaid that I have modelled in the last week. she was inspired by both Greek sculptures and Manga stylism.

Critz please.

i think she looks really good but I have a coupla comments:

the tail is too flat, i think that it should have more curves and detail (compared to the rest of the model it's lacking too much detail)

I get the feeling that the woman looks too old, when I think of a mermaid I think lithe, young and beautiful... but maybe that's just personal preference.

Looking forwards to seeing more of this though

whoa, i love everything.. everything from the head, to the waist. I think you should get some more mermaid pictures and figure out how the fin comes out of the skin.. the fin imo looks quite generalised compared to the rest of the body. I would suggest making it look like theres muscle support on the sides of the fins and then show it like a flap of skin.. i will make a quick image.

BTW, wasnt that the face you used in another model? its a wonderful face, but yea.. maybe make the eyes a bit bigger, different "teen/young adult" like expressions.. and definately change the hair style.. if its a mermaid, it wouldnt keep that hair up for more than a minute under the water :O.. i think straight long hair down to the back.. just like ariel ..

Oh and one other thing.. you added an ass to your mermaid.. but mermaids dont have asses .. I am quite sure of this after watching the little mermaid too many times as a kid. If anything, after you get past the waist it is like a fish tail.. so i would keep the arch you have to where the butt would be, but then have it curve down all the way to the tail, not come back in, then down.

really nice model though, especially the upper body!
