Still waters run deep censored by LeneWe Still waters run deep censored by LeneWe
This one evolved from a sketch...my friend had the idea to put tentacles into her hair :D
In the original sketch she seemed a bit shy that's why I kept her pose that way.
I decided to paint a background after I almost finished her coloration so she's now looking kind of stiff.
...Let's just say still water runs deep ;)

edit: yeah, all mermaids need to have red hair!
and yes, there are knees inside her tail^^

Awesome concept with the combination tentacle-hair!  I can imagine her in a kissing embrace with a sailor & the previously hidden tentacles springing forth & capturing her 'prey!'  I love her graceful look & long tail. I also enjoy the un-censored version, too. In fact, I really like the hand pose in the sketched version the best!  In addition to those exotic-looking pelvis-fins, she would've looked fantastic with webbed fingers, too. Hope you have more of her in store for your gallery!!

thanks for your detailed feedback!
I'm always happy to see that someone's taking my
work and is developing some innovative thoughts about it.
Maybe there will be some more of the mermaid in future paintings,
who knows ;)

Die Lichtspiele im unteren Bereich sind klasse aber ich glaube Haut, Haare und gelbe Seitenflossen könnten ein wenig mehr Blau vertragen evtl auch dunkler sein, da es doch recht tief im Wasser zu sein scheint. Aber gut sich an solche schwierigen Scenen zu wagen. *DaumenHoch*

I like her face epresion, she looks so mysterious, which is also underlined by the dark background. Also, the tentacles in her hair is very original idea, I love it ^^

Normally I don't go for the censored versions, but I looked at both and I have to say I prefer it over the uncensored. I think it feels more balanced. 

I also really like her expression and the way you did the scales. There is so much to look at!

This is beautiful. The background is beautiful, the mermaid is beautiful. I really like the twist, making her more like a monster to contrast her beauty and shyness. Very creative and lovely.
