She is a very beautiful model and the red hair is gorgeous. I think the mermaid tail should have been a bit more realistic. But over all, well done :D ... The angle in which the picture was taken is really good.. Maybe adding a little smaller head crown would be better or a bit more isometric. Well that's only my thoughts. I like the net over her and the type of jewelry she is wearing. Her makeup is really nice and quite natural. The only thing a teeny tiny bit odd is that there are sea shells in a picture with a lake/fresh-water background. But hey, that is like hardly noticeable and doesn't make the picture any less beautiful!:D
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
10 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

Hmmm, first things first:
I really really like the outfit, it's very well-made and gives off a very different feeling as opposed to traditional, Disney-inspired "little mermaids": the fishnet in particular is a nice touch that adds a more "rugged" sensation and a stronger character impression, while instead the shells on the headpiece are a little too big for my tastes...
another thing I would have avoided is the red nail polish... to create contrast with al the green I'd rather see more red accessories like that bracelet, instead.
The flaming red hair does the rest, after all~
The facial make-up is great in every single little detail, I love it and I also like the angle of the photo, it makes it look like the eye of the observer is a person who was walking by the shore and sees the mermaid...
...the only thing I don't like much in that department is maybe the fact that the tip of the fin is cut off... a little bit higher would have been better, for my tastes, but other than that is a great photo.

...p.s.: I wish I was that pretty =)
