Las Sirenas

For some reason everyone wants to do mermaids with the green tail and the scallop shell bra. Every so often you’ll find some bold artist who wants to shatter the paradigm and will give her a starfish bra instead

Pterois are some cool looking fish, so I based my siren off that design. I gave them an oriental skintone because it complimented the lionfish palette

  1. The inspiration for this piece was a lionfish, and then I tried to imagine how it might evolve into a siren. Hence the fin like hands and neck gills. I suppose I should also list the Odyssey as an inspiration but they’re not described at all in that text, other than they have long golden hair. In fact, there seems to be some confusion in Greek mythology between sirens and harpies, but clearly they’d have a syrinx either way

  2. Very beautiful and certainly different siren. I am sure Poseidon or Neptune would approve. I used to draw years ago, but I found that I had no imagination, so I just let it go. Where do you get your inspiration, if I might be so bold to ask?
