Not-so-spontaneous painting of some color-rific mermaids. Based on the colors and fins of a rainbow dragonette, and a spotted rainbow dragonette.
I very much like the idea of mermaids that look much more fishy than human. While these aren't quite at the "more fishy than human" design level, I'm more intrigued by the patterns and colors extending up the faces and arms, as opposed to more Little Mermaid sort of designs, where it is 100% human from waist up.
Hope you all like it!
