Mermaid by JenZee Mermaid by JenZee
I've been reading lots of One Piece (trying to get through the whole manga...!) and had just met Camie. I thought to myself.... I don't think I've drawn a mermaid since I was 12 or something!!! What the heck! Rectifying situation STAT.

Kind of a cheat, but I guess this sort of counts as an entry in the Brothers Grimm art collection ;D.

Hope you guys enjoy :)! Thanks in advance for all comments/criticism/charcuterie!

You're reading One Piece!  Oh man, please draw more OP inspired stuff :D  It makes me really irrationally happy to know that one of my favorite artists is reading my favorite manga.

I would say the tail could use some more color, but it would just distract from the amazing color range she already has. Fantastic job! I need to paint more mermaids too.

She is so gorgeous! The way her posture and chin-jutting are situated, it makes me feel like I'm looking at someone from a regal bloodline. 

p.s. One Piece is the absolute shit! You've GOTTA tell us your favorite character and why in a journal!

WIICKEED..! The color choices are beautiful together, very dark ethereal. I like the barnacles and fins-instead-of-arms. Lovely! Nice to see the fantasy put back into this creature.

Predatory Mermaid! Watch Out!

On a side note, Camie's hilarious and her face-faults are outrageous!

You're reading One Piece?!?  :D

And if you *just* met Camie... ohhh man.  No spoilers, I swear: The next (extremely minor) encounter provides the single biggest laugh in the entire series, and from there it's about a hundred chapters of just sheer epic awesomeness.  You thought Enies Lobby had some dramatic battles... HOO boy.
