First Mermaid Wip2

The next step of the drawing. I decided to go with the suggestion of ScarletGothica on DA, which were dark blue hair. At first I thought it wouldn't be that great but I think it's different and since it is a fantasy creature I guess there is no limits to colours anyway.
Thanks Scarlet and thanks to everyone else for your suggestions, regarding hair, colours etc.

I managed to make the tail a bit longer and I already think it helped. Also included a close-up of her face as it's hard to tell on the small drawing.

I think this drawing is going to take a very long time. I am working on it alongside with my all new project which I am so exited about (= I will tell you more soon and of course show when it has arrived.

I'm modeling my mermaid after Lena, whom I have used several time, for my fairies especially. She has a wonderful stock worth checking out ♥
