I'm finally done with this piece! I worked pretty hard with it and must say that I am very satisdied with the outcome. Thanks to everyone on Pixelation and Pixel Joint that has helped me out with it!

Nothing special with the theme of this really. I just felt like pixelling a mermaid. I also threw in a tree because I needed to practise that. The water was also a great learning experience as I don't think I've tried to do a reflection in water like that before.

EDIT: made a few nitpicks. Nothing major.

I just love everything about this, so much great detail... the knots in the tree... the way the apples pop out... the floating core... the green pattern wrapping around her side... wonderful.

This is superb. The colors, the athmosphere, the textures. Only AA is not consistent throughout the piece. 6/6 + FAV anyway!

I love Mermaids!

(Bias aside) Everything about this piece is just excellent. The colors and the lushness of the whole piece especially. Great job!

This is an awesome piece. I love how you did the little bugs/beatles and the trail behind them :) Always looking forward to your work.

Mirre (Level 8 Jellyfish) @ 1/13/2007 16:26

Heyy everyone. Thank you so much for all the comments and favs! It's really, really appreciated and I feel so spoiled, haha.

The B.O.B: oh, well... I'm getting pretty tired of this one by now. Wanna move on. I got so much c&c and help on this and it really helped. But now I am happy with how it looks, and I think I'll leave it like this.

Stwelin: Thank you so much! :D

Cure: Now, let's not get ahead of ourselves, haha. But thank you!

thor: Actually I'm not really sure. I think I was unsure whether the others needed it or not, and then I forgot about it.

LauriP (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/8/2007 09:05
Really nice. I personally like the style of the bird she's holding. ^_^ But the whole art is very nice.

This rox! that's all I can say!

thor (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/4/2007 07:55
Great work! This is a beautiful scene! Why are some of the oranges dithered and others not? Anyways, doesn't make a difference, beautiful.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/3/2007 14:04
Completely and utterly fantastic. Wonderful work.
The palette is just right which gives a great fairy tale like quality to the piece.

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/2/2007 12:22

zeid (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/2/2007 09:10
what can i say, awesome, this piece will always be an  example of excellence to me... finally accepted by u to b released. A true example of pixel work its start was most great and its state a present was very nice. faved definatly (drunkeness) but seriously sober me = realisation of awesomness

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/1/2007 17:15
Beatuful, from shapes to colors - just awesome.=)

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/1/2007 11:36
Another terrific piece, definately going on my favorites list.  The recent face crit and blue rock highlight edit I actually thought would have inproved the piece, though the former only a stylistic choice.  Congrats on the feature and inevitable trophy.

Stwelin (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/1/2007 11:21
I've lurked this piece's thread from top to bottom and i have to say, the amount of dedication and work you put into it is amazing, and well worth it. totally flawless and stunning.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/1/2007 11:13
Yay! You finally submitted it in. I was like, " What, she thinks she's too good to submit her mermaid at Pixeljoint, or what?" Heh, kidding. Great job, and I think it's wonderful when artists like you take critiques to heart, and work to make it what it is today.
I'm still a little iffy on the upper horizon/dither technique, but nothing to change it over. The only thing I really miss is a little more man-service, with the previous nip-slip....Joking, but seriously, Great job...
