Leafy Sea-Dragon Mermaid by Saimain Leafy Sea-Dragon Mermaid by Saimain
I've always thought Leafy Sea-Dragons [link] [link] were strangely adorable. They're so delicate and, well...leafy, like a living piece of seaweed, hee. I thought they would make a beautiful mermaid design. ^__^

I decided to finish this in colored pencils, as that seemed to be what people voted for the most. Not my best medium, but it was fun! I need more practice with them, anyway. :)

Some customer bring me this piece to get tattooed. I found the original here afterward! You can see pictures here : [link]

Ah, you did a *very* nice job, but I expressly forbid my work to be used for tattoos. This person either ignored me when I said no, or did not bother to ask my permission at all. x_X;;

I don't know if they even found it on DA because DA images often show up on Google images so it's easy just to copy the picture without reading the fine prints.
If that can help ease you, this customer is AIDS infected and your image had a very powerful meaning for her. You now know that your creativity can reach and help people beyond your original work and I feel this is something grand.

All my images are marked with my name, copyright symbol and website. I am honored that the artwork means something special to her, but she still did not have my permission.
