Silence after storm by aeryael Silence after storm by aeryael
So I decided to try coloring one of my ink & pen pieces... and I love it!! So I'll do more. I hope you like it.

Oh, now that it's colored, I also decided to give it another title, because the colors gave it a new atmosphere, I think.

Edit:
The original is here: [link]

I did not read through the comments so if this was already addressed I apologize, but have you ever thought of creating a tarot deck? If it didn't cost a fortune I know I'd buy it. Your work is simply remarkable regardless! :)

I love the style and the coloring. I love the designs and lighting on her fins. And the jewelry and seashell headdress she wears...and how you drew the water. I just love everything about this picture.

I've also noticed that you seem to get a lot of influence from Indian or Arab art, from the looks of it. It looks really cool!

oops, *mermaiDs
Now that's new... no one has ever said that my works resemble indian or arab art. That's cool! But if I get influence from that, is not intentional, I hardly know or look at this kind of art. Maybe it's my half-lebanese blood? :P

Dunno, maybe. But the some of the really detailed and stylized pictures, like the winged mermaid on the rock, really remind me of Indian or Arab art. It looks awesome!

Did you know that sirens were winged women originally? At some point they were turned into half-fish women in the myths. =)

:iconmarissasunshine:
MarissaSunshine Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yes, they were, in Greek mythology. But when the siren-like nature of mermaids came along, they became the new sirens. It's hard to know when that happened however.

And you sure do know how to use colors, too... I really love that vintage-ey rusty look. So well done! :clap:
