Mermaid - Final by Sya Mermaid - Final by Sya
I decided to listen to some of the critiquing I recieved on this piece and finish her up a bit more. I added a background and tried to add a little depth to the body while still insuring the fractal still felt like it belonged. Too much realism could detract from the real message here.

I used a fractal I made with VChira a while back ago for the sky, and a fractal I recently made in Apophysis for the layers of water. The body was from Sabrine-Photo-Stock

She rises up
sweeps me away
