I love the uniqueness of this picture and the pose puts out so much emotion. The tail's pose is interesting. However the lines (veins?) don't match up with eachother. With how transparent her fins are the connections should be visable. I also think that you could push the contrast more since everything is monochromatic. Contrast is what makes the color pop. :)

Congratulations on the DD, you certainly deserved it. <3

This is amazing! I have an OC with transculent hair sort of like this,and partially absorbs light,but there's no way I can draw it out like this. Maybe I'll learn someday^^

this is a very cool drawing, I really like this mermaid, but I have to ask : if she's a jellyfish mermaid... why does she have a tail and scales ? Or did you mean jellyfish mermaid as in "the one who hangs out with jellyfishes ?"
