In the classic version of the siren, they were depicted as half bird, half woman. but after searching the link, i found that they were also depicted as evil versions of the mermaid, set out to lure sailors to their deaths.

i took the concept of the siren and i made it my own. instead of a lovely maiden, i reflected their evil nature in their looks.

Special thanks to Linzee777 @ deviantart for the mermaid tail resource, Sinned-angel-stock for the model. (5 years and 2576 days ago)

Oh that's an amazing scene and idea. I think you should bet more on shading to give it a higher dynamic.

It's good to have a style, your own style there's many ppl with a style here, which is not bad in my opinion.

NICE but is the tale premade by another person ??? is that alowed ???

author says:

I asked a mod, and this tail is an allowed resource.
it really is no different than using 3d render stocks or .png files that are up as unrestricted sources.

when in doubt, ask. the mods will be quite helpful.

That's not surprised to me, author, because I also realized that your style is unique and stable through all of your entries. Your ideas behind the entries easily impress people and your execution is clever. As far as this entry is concerned, you achieved your goal for sure. Even though this contest will be full of mermaids, maybe I won't see any spooky mermaid like that again because that's too difficult to compete with you . I just have a suggestion of increasing the brightness of the whole scene for people to appreciate more what you've done. Best of luck to you
EDIT: Oops, I'm sorry, sometimes siren is depicted as a kind of mermaid but in general they are distinctive.

author says:

Wow langstrum *faints* thank you! Such an amazing compliment from someone as talented as yourself! I have been playing with the brightness on this to see if I liked it better and will likely upload an updated version soon.
And, technically, she's not a mermaid but a siren...however, I did seem to make my own version of what I see them as. I remember well homers "oddesey" and this is what I always pictured the sirens...perhaps when they surface they turn beautiful just to help them lure the sailors to their ocean graves.

Am I seeing a Hollywood Movie!!!!!!!, fantastic entry in a fantastic contest. GL

author says:

thank you shaadow and Nator. so appreciated.

I did go back and play with some lighting on this, brightened the image quite a bit, and made her face much more visable. Thanks for the suggestions, and hope this pleases your eyes as much as it did mine in the finished stage.
