This might not be the last version of this image. I was saying on deviantART that I was having a problem with the composition and one of my favourite artists offered to look at it so I couldn't pass up on this and I may end up improving it if I can. But I didn't want to wait any longer to post something here in order to thank you all who voted for me for the AOM and for all the nice messages of encouragement and congratulations I received. Thank you very much, it means a lot to me and also all your support in the last 5 years :)
This image was inspired by the art of Michael Parkes who I just discovered and fell in love with :)

Dress and hat are Gothic Muse by LilFlame on synfulmindz. The skirt part was retextured with Paisly texture by parrotdolphin
The mermaid fin is from Water World by ilona
Hair, ribbon, glove (with paisly texture again) and background painted by me.
Pose started with one of Ilona's but redone by me. I had to repaint the left arm also because it really didn't work after I bent it like that so close to her body in Poser :)

Even at 40% of its size, I had to compress the image a lot to fit 512kb, so I hope the resolution is still good...

this pose is just beautiful. the whole image is lovely, but what captivates me is the pose, the tendrils of hair, and the ribbons.

très poétique cette image, un style un peu différent il me semble, j'aime beaucoup :).

Beautiful! I love all the curvy hair and ribbon bits. Love the pose and especially her profile/expression.

I love the flair with which you have made this wonderful mermaid scene. You really do deserve AOM with your amazing work and I thank you for sharing. I love how you have done her fins and the super colours you have used.

outstanding... for me is perfect... all match, all combines, nothing is breaking the balance... I only would add something to what she can "look" with that lovely expression she has... but as it is, is masterpiece :)
