The Siren of the French Broad by viper-fish The Siren of the French Broad by viper-fish
Art 401 homework. Started with a sketch from observation along the river. Added in a lady mermaid! Woo! Loosely based around the “Siren of the French Broad.”

I've been to Paris a few times and this reminds me of the Frenchwomen I saw there--small waisted, round hipped, and with a very direct matter-of-fact, I'm-ready-if-you-are attitude toward sexuality. It was refreshing to say the least. Heartily recommended for single men looking for wordly experience with women.

Nice work! I really like how you did the river with all the details and light reflections. And I specially like how you did the hair of the mermaid.

Simply adore the soft earthy colors here, and the cozy little setting. Makes me think of that forest between the worlds, in "The Magician's Nephew." Bravo!

In the myth I loosely based her off of she appears as a beautiful woman, and turns into a terrifying monster as she pulls her prey into the river!
