The Wreck by dewmanna The Wreck by dewmanna
A painting that I started working on ages ago but only got around to finishing now. School's out so I'll be painting a lot more now! here's something fantastical amidst all the portraits I've been doing lately. Unfortunately only when I was at the final stages of the painting did I notice just how much it resembled this other painting I have:



Oh well. Anyway, the ship wreck in the background was added after an insiring visit to the Titanic museum and watching Titanic 3D. Yes I know it's cheesy but I love the movie Titanic. In fact I've been collecting reference photos of the very handsome Jack Dawson and will probably paint him pretty soon. Hope you guys like this one :) Comments very much appreciated!

I like the shoulder fins, that's unusual.

It is wonderful. I don't know i it is only my computer screen, but the wreck is a little dark here, I can hardly see it. A bit more emphasis on the wreck could help compose a harmonic work-together of fore- and brackground. But I love the mermaid. The shape, the dynamics, the anatomy and the contrast between blue and red (I looooove blue :) ) work together juyt right! :)

There are some similarities, it's true, but then there aren't really that many ways to cover one's boobs with one's arms. (grins) ~ And yes, she's looking off to her right, but her expression and the emotional tone of this one is much different than Hamadryad.

The only concrit I can offer is that her "knee bend" seems a bit too narrow (if perhaps the distance from her butt to her knees is too short?) ~ Her upper body 0 head, shoulders, torso - seem very well proportioned, but that lower bit doesn't look quite right to me.

Also - the red bits don't quite make sense in terms of the light source ( but they are very cool, so I've told me brain to shush about them.)

thanks so much for the feedback! I'm not sure what you mean about the lower half proportions, since it looks ok to me but I'll take a better look at it another time! I agree with you about the red bits and I'll definitely look into that when I have time! I really appreciate your critique :)
