Mermaid finished finally!

I have to admit, I wasn't sure about a gypsy mermaid, but the wonderful lady who commissioned her must be a genius! She wanted her patterned after Disney's Esmerelda with dark skin, voluptuous curves, black hair and bright scarlet orange colors for her mermaid tail.

Thank you Marisa, this one co operated with me. That's not always the case, so I was very pleased with how she came out, especially with her skin tone.

When I mentioned in an earlier post about Esmerelda the Mermaid, that "this one co operated with me" I was referring to the mermaid, not the customer who commissioned her. I've been blessed with exceptional and extremely easy to work with collectors.

I forgot to comment on this...I LOVE YOU JUDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Esmeralda is a most unusual mermaid. She dances as well as she swims ;)

Thanks Michelle, I think Esmeralda is one of my favorites. Her skin color was perfect and went so well with the bright scarlet and orange.
