Naga Viva by EmanuelMardsjo Naga Viva by EmanuelMardsjo
"She allures the attention of lonely fishermen and sailors with her mesmerising siren call... and then... then comes the kiss, and they are forever hers."

This was a real challange for me. Never actually thought I'd finish it. From the first sketch, this result seemed almost unattainable, so I was -this- close to scrapping it. Instead I did the opposite and pursued my vision. And it payed off! :) I have never had this much of an head-ache at the finish-line of a drawing. Probably it's the result of long sessions of active drawing- thinking and calculating. Puff! I really hope you like it. Enjoy :>

I feel silly leaving such a trite comment on such a gorgeous piece, but I have to ask: was Amanda Palmer at all a facial inspiration for her? She looks uncannily like!

oh I love this! really awesome colours, and that anatomy ahh :3
something I find a little awkward though is her left hand is cut off at the side, it just catches your eye too much ^^
