Lady of the Lake by ebonydragon Lady of the Lake by ebonydragon

Type: Fullbody - Cartoony

Another aquatic maiden :) This character is sort of inspired by the Arthurian legends. A maiden in love got her confession rejected. Heartbroken, she rowed to the middle of the lake and fell into it. The gods took pity on her and gave her a mermaid form. They used the outfit she was wearing as raw material to create scales on her body. It was a beautiful multi-colored dress with a golden belt, made by herself to impress the man she was in love with. The gown was so skillfully handsewn each color blended with each other.

This has to be one of the most gorgeous mermaids I've ever seen!  I love the details and colors.  Her facial expression as she transforms is priceless.  And though most mermaid artists stop at the waistline, I like how you brought the scales up to her breasts...and the shape of the fin is beautiful too.  Very well done...I'm definitely faving this!

I love the incredible/marvelous form for Lady Of The Lake, thank you for all the scales and colors and I love how you blended in the belt so well, the belt becomes scales as well :)
Beautiful shading and hues of colors and shadows I must add.
Great looking tail too! I love the look on Lady of the Lake as she gazes in awe of her new body and tail.
You pulled off the neck fin too, adds alot to the mermaid.
Nice and simple background too.
No one said that Lady Of The Lake couldn't be a mermaid or adding something new to the legend! ;)
Thumbs up approval!

Glad you enjoy the result! :D The colors were a bit of a challenge, took me quite a few tries to figure out how to blend everything in a way that would be harmonious enough but it was fun to do nonetheless :)
