I think you most definitely captured the aqua element that is almost essential to creating a mermaid or mermaid-esque piece. This is obviously contributed by the color scheme you choice---and wisely so---which also helps add to the emotional quality of the painting.
I very much so like how you actually took the time to detail in some fish as well as aqueous plant life. It is simplistic until you full view it and see the detail of the little scales as well as the petals of the floral plants.
Unlike most pieces (which is something I, myself, am fond of) the mermaid pictured isn't ecstatic with things, she seems contradicted and even sorrowful.
I personally think you did a great job and managed to bring it to a personal level.
What do you think?

alright so this one time i was in a bathroom and it had like all this shit on the floor. someone left their shit. on the. floor. So what i did was look at it about for like 10 minutes just trying to figure out what the fuck the shit on the floor? And i FOUND OUT

it looks. like this. that shit that was up on the floor looked as though if as though it was this drawing. do you understand me you bitch? i smeared my shit on the floor, jerked off into it, and it looked like this. it was fucking hot and you did a good job. you did a good job with your fanart of my shitcum.

so take solace. in. the fact that you draw good shitcum. i would pay you to draw shitcum. i would PAY you. to draw shitcum. for me. would you do it? if i told you you had to or id find you and push you off a cliff and watch you fall until you die... would you do it? or scared? maybe back off of my family you bitch? you bitch? i hate how you look aat me

this one time. you know. i was looking in the mirror. and i saw you. and i realized. it was me. and you. look like me

so me and my buddy KEITH were MOTORCYCLYING one day and we FOUND OUT that KEITH doesn't KNOW how to MOTORCYCLYING. so he DIED. that reminds me of this photo because i remember the wreckage his motorcyclying left behind. and his mangled body. his mangled, dead, bloated DYING DEAD BODY. you bitch. you killed KEITH

so I was actually telling my brother about this art as i typed this and he said that i was being hardsh on you, so my original score of 0/100000000000000000000000000 can be upsdated with the USE of the buttons over on my right (look to my right as we speak right now you can see it. ifyou LOOK?!). so yea 5/5 stars

BUT WAIT OBJECTION. i looked at your other art sometime after i posted this critique and it did not impress me. it hrt me. it hurt my feelings. it hurt my dying father's feelings. it hurt my feelings and their dying father. it hurt. your phott. hurts. it hurts. all. it hurts all? it hurts all

so then i realized i was overreacting so i went and grabbed a steak from Miccy D's and they sold me some soda to go along with it. i was pleased so i came back, fucked my sandwich, ate the globby cum burger, and clicked the buttoms again and rated higher

your welcome

so yea. why do you want critique? why does insecurity? why does not happen unto YOU but also happens unto me? why does? do you know? do i know? i do. you don't. i win


but if i had to give you a critique, i had a say that your a silly cunt and you need to stop

good job. good luck. go go team
