I LOVE this picture, it really is amazing.

The first thing I notice is how good the skin looks. You've done a fantastic job of shading the skin and making it look wet, which is incredible.

The water and the way part of her is submerged and some is out of water really makes this piece original and stands out. You've done a great job at it.

The hair looks great! I love the way it flows underwater, but sticks to the face out of the water, it does look realistic this way.

Now the fin around her hipbones looks a little off. Maybe make it curve around her hips, because it looks a bit like it's laying on her body instead of around her.

The anatomy looks fine to me. I think maybe her elbows are a bit pointed, but that's all i really see.

The most amazing thing I see is the water. The reflection of leaves, the white reflection where it touches her body all make it look incredibly real.

All and all, it's a very well thought out and well done piece. The way her fin turn to legs out of water make it even more original and memorable. Great job :)

Ahaha, it's like the mermaids from other movies where once they leave the water, their fins turn to legs.  If only the rules in her movie had been that simple.  XD

Very nice concept on this one! The execution is very nice too of course but the concept is the part that caught my eye.  Great job!

I love how you did this piece. Her legs above water and her fins underneath pretty much tells the movie in one single picture image of utter longing and beauty. Gorgeous work!
