Well, first off I just LOVE the content of the image- who doesn't love mermaids and fish?

I think the image itself is successful in color unity and emotion as well as the accuracy in the underwater environment.

My only real dislike with the image is the focal point being dead center. I think this one can get away with it due to the environment, but I think using the golden rectangle could have helped you with a better composition and crop. It would have allowed more exploration and a better visual Impact :)

I also think her hair is a little flat compared to the rest of the artwork. While i understand it helps separation, I think her warm colors are contrasting enough with the rest of the environment (and her being center)- she would still stand out.

I also don't understand how she's breathing- her skin suggests mermaid, her outfit suggests human :XD: but this could be in a world where humans are aliens that are also mermaids :D

Over all, this is poster worthy, tote bag worthy, i-phone case worthy, just a multi-product worthy image!!! :aww: I love the style, I love the texture, and I love this painting :)
