Should I...? by Cherry-sama Should I...? by Cherry-sama
Alternate titles include Mermaid Floozy or "Come on, guppy, just let me get in your fins~"

Well, this is what I've been working on in the past month or two.
I drew this on one of my summer trips, and quite liked it, so I coloured it.

But, apart from the bazillions of nitpicking I did on this picture, my favourite part of this picture is their faces and body language.
I won't say anything because it'll ruin the fun of interpretation, but I will say that if you think about who these people merpeople are, you can literally tell a whole story even if your answers are just based on pure assumption.
So, when looking at this picture, ask yourself a few questions:
Who are these people merpeople?
How and where did they grow up?
How long have they known each other?
What is their relationship?
Is their relationship healthy?
What are they thinking (apart from the title and alternate titles)?

Partial Inspiration for the Merfloozy's Hair: [link]
Version With Brighter Colours but No Ocean: [link]
Other Fail: [link]
Helped convince me on several occasions that I wasn't quite done and that the picture could be better: [link]

...But, seriously, though, please analyze this picture as much as you can.
It'll reassure me that I didn't just waste my time.

When I saw the description of this in your favorite deviation section, all I could think of was nightmare before Christmas XD

Ok. The part I'm referencing is when Jack skellington (the main character) is performing the song "what's this?" When he goes away from Halloween Town and discovers Christmas Town. At the end of the song, Jack yells "WHAT IS THIS?" Before bumping into a pole and the song ends with him saying "Christmas Town?"
So when I saw the "WHAT'S THIS?" In bold text, all I could think of was the end of the song.
Wow that was a long comment.

I admit, that version is cool, but I prefer the with-ocean.

And, your welcome. :D I can't color very well, so half the time I use the bucket/fill in tool, so when I see someone's coloring that is better than mine; I immediatly think: "Dat coloring is so good."

Yeah, I like the ocean one too, but I was really sad when I had to change the colours to a bluetone.
=P

This is the first deviation I even submitted: [link]
It's allll about practice.

Hehe, that picture was good for a first try, it is actually better than my digital drawings, I don't have a tablet, so I can't draw well. That's why I use bases. :/

I basically traced a picture my sister drew.
Also, believe it or not, this picture was done with the little pad on my laptop: [link]
The moral of the story?: You can do anything if you practice. ;)

Mmm... That is true, but I am not patient, so that's a con. It was done on that tiny little pad?! Wow, that's pretty cool.

Okay, well, I did the lineart on paper, but most of my digital works are dominated by laptop pad work.
And it did take me days of on and off work to do it.
:D
.........My sister finds the fact that I got used to making pictures with the little laptop pad thingy pathetic, though.

There's a reason why they are wearing clothes around their waists.

Cool shading and character design, but what's with the first alternate title?

You know she's going to say yes.

Hmm, good point.
She's not that shallow.
So...what do you call a male floozy, then?
