Koi Mermaid 2012 by Neolucky Koi Mermaid 2012 by Neolucky
First off, if you'd be curious to see what the 2007 version looks like, then head over here -- [link]

Basically there's this koi mermaid image I traditionally made some odd years ago, and it's always done well at conventions. So I thought it'd be nice to revisit the picture, and make it a new watercolor print. <3 Enjoy~.

Oh my gosh! I remember being given the 2007 version of this picture at Aurora-con in Alaska when it was still going on. :D I like the original, but I love the improvements that you've made~ ^^

I gotta say your mermaid type pictures are really amazing, whether it be a shark type or this type you've always blown me away with both design and beauty of your works, this one is truly spectacular and deserves more then just these words I am giving it, welldone.

You. One of the few people I've seen who doesn't add the awkward knee-bend to the tail. THANK YOU!

Me too! DX AMG it's annoying! I mean, you'd think they understood that the tail is the extension of the spine but-- *SPAZZ*

Someone tried to justify it to me by saying "they were probably using stock that had a person dressed as a mermaid" and we got into an argument about how that wasn't an excuse. XD

I'm embarrassed when I see my work from 2007...
The revisit is so lovely! Somewhere some guy is getting her tattooed on his arm or back!

Oh wow, I had never seen such a more breathtaking piece of Mermaid art and what puts me in more awe is that it's also almost exactly what I had in mind for an OC that I made for one of my Young Justice/Inuyasha Xover oneshots that's in progress.

Awesome detail and a gorgeous final masterpiece XD Keep up the awesome work! XD
