Just Another Fiji Mermaid by Tonicacat Just Another Fiji Mermaid by Tonicacat
So I worked on this off and on for a few weeks thinking it was a really clever idea and all... then one night it hit me, "I've seen this before." And then I realized Rob zombie made a human Fiji Mermaid in House of a Thousand Corpses. Ah well, I never thought my ideas were ever all that creative. :) But of course it turned out much different then that one. I really need to learn how to photograph paintings though, there is some aweful glare on the right side.

oil on canvas, 30"x24" or somewheres about there.

Your picture is very strange and exotic, I like it! I find the colours you used are feating very well together, I especially like how you did her tail. I find she looks like a kind of diva, lying like that. The little monkeys are also very funny! I love them! :XD:
Do you know the artist Frida Khalo? Your art makes me think about her, she could inspire you.

Thank you! Yes! Frida Khalo is quite the inspiring artist, but her life humbles me completely.

I love how it maintains a sort of dark, "grainy" horror-kind of feel despite the vibrant colors and the humorous monkey servants.

I wish I'd painted it. *jealousy*
