SPA Challenge-Mermaids


Everyone loves mermaids; they are right up there with fairies, pixies, elves and angels-beautiful and mythic. I made my mermaid from an image from Suzee Que' flickr site. She was originally sitting on a broom! The tail is from a PNG set I found on Deviantart.com, by Linzee777. DeviantArt is a great source for all kinds of free for personal use stuff--from fonts and brushes to backgrounds, textures and , well...mermaid tails. The angelfish is fom a photo taken by my daughter, Emily, who has her own page at DeviantArt. http://celacia.deviantart.com/. Other textures from T4L, and some stuff that I can't remember where I found it. Thank you, whoever you are.
And thank you all for visiting.

  2. This MUST be seen in close-up! That angelfish is a stunner. Isn't it fun finding all the bits and pieces to construct a digital piece of art? Such a happy hobby! The colors you've chosen are gorgeous. Five stars for this one!

  13. Wow! Your picture is superb in every way. I hope everyone took the time to enlarge it so as not to miss any of the finer details. The design, the image, the colours, the coolness (thanks for that!!) are wonderful.
    I need cool thoughts as, here in south-western Australia, we are experiencing a very long and drawn out heatwave and the hottest summer on record. Global warming is HERE!
