There be nipples.
But yeah, this is Luce, a character from a very nice mermaid book I read called Lost Voices. I very highly recommend it for anybody out there who's as starved for a good mermaid book as I am. Just be warned of two conditions: 1)Even though the imagery is exquisite, the book is pretty dark in tone and in characters 2)Its the first in a trilogy. A MUTHATRUCKIN' trilogy. SO it has a characteristically unsatisfactory ending >:C (I'm generally opposed to sequels in general)
Other than those minor drawbacks, I really liked the book, and had a hard time putting it down. I picked it up purly by chance when the store didn't have my Unicorn book XD Its just SO HARD to find good mermaid books. Especially given this market infuriatingly saturated with vampires to where Barnes and Noble has a friggin' "supernatural teen romance" section >.<
The mermaids in the book are constantly described as having "long bodies" so I tried to make her tail as such. She's pretty dang traditional, which is a fun change once in a while :3
OMG. NO Texture D8 I'm trying so hard for backgrounds :CCCCCC
