Lost at Sea by CraigJohn Lost at Sea by CraigJohn
I've always liked the 'evil mermaid' concept.

This was done using the Lost Realm mermaid and Sirens add-on texture. Her hair is Reby Sky Glamour. His outfit is Leon di Castiglia and Glyn Hair is the hair used.

The background and bubbles were created in Photoshop. I created a Bubble brush based on photo reference and painted them in.

EDIT: Added in the other casualties of the ship wreck

Software - Poser & Photoshop

Thanks for looking.

I've wrote of evil mermaids too, and this must happen in . . . the Sargasso Sea?

Amazing! I never really see depictions of evil mermaids, but this one looks great, especially with all the other casualties floating about. I particularly like how you made the mermaid and the man near her the focal point and blurred everyone else out. That adds quite a bit of depth. Wonderful color and overall style!

Thank you! :XD:

I'm sure I saw evil mermaids in a film once and haven't been able to think of them as 'good' anymore (although I totally forgot the film unfortunately). Evil temptresses enticing sailors into dangerous waters (a kind of combination for mermaids and sirens). :)

I recall seeing evil mermaids in the Peter Pan films (not the disney versions). I wonder what other films they might be in.

Sounds like we may need to embark on a viewing marathon of all films containing mermaids to find out!! :squee:
