Made for CDC #353: Mermaids – http://www.heromachine.com/2018/02/18/cdc-353-mermaids/#comment-121318
Been wanting to make a mermaid for a while now so it was pretty good timing on my part on swinging by the forums again. I went with a more siren approach taking inspiration from the song “Loreley” by Blackmore’s Night. I placed her laying next to the trench where all of here victims sink after being lured upon the rocks of her reef. Her custom tail was made drawing some imagery from lionfish. Their fins are super cool looking.
I won’t post any song lyrics here to prevent copyright issues but you can look them up here: https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/blackmoresnight/loreley.html if you want to see my inspiration. You can also look up the song on YouTube.
