Don't tap the glass. by jollyjack Don't tap the glass. by jollyjack

Birthday pic for my Mum :)

I always ask her what she'd like me to draw. This year she said "Fairground Fairy" and told me to draw the first thing that brought to mind.
At first I thought "Goldfish", and was going to draw a little mermaid in a bag, alongside some actual fish, but the struck me as kinda melancholy.
I liked the aquatic angle, though, so the mermaid went from prize to star attraction :)

She looks really odd without nipples.

The contrast colors between the human and mermaid and the over all design is great, but the Mermaid's tail seems a little thin and too..."wiggly"

She must be part of James Cameron's magical underwater kingdom.

AND IF REALLY THE BOY IS THE ONE INSIDE THE BOX AND THE MERMAID IS ANALYZING THE ATTRACTION? THE PAINTING OF THE AMAZING MERMAID COULD BE THE ILLUSIONS IN HIS MIND...
