Mermaid Vision by joshparkinson Mermaid Vision by joshparkinson
This piece is a digital painting done in photoshop. It was inspired by the story of how sailors and pirates would get lost out at sea and mistake manatees for mermaids. Personally I don't know how this could happen but I thought it would make a fun piece. I really wanted to focus on a simple and elegant design and color scheme. Also after looking at many Rockwell Paintings I wanted to accentuate the poses of my characters and really bring them to life.

I guess a long way from a female and a quite a bit of rum and you forget what a woman looks like but seriously awesome work.

It's all that rum, don'tchaknow. :D  Easy to see why pirates would mistake manatees for mermaids with all that rum in their systems!

What heard has a grain of truth. There was no mistake, the fact of the matter is that manatees in particular have very human-like vaginas and sailors fucked them.

Cool concept and really well done! Your characters' attitude indeed reminds me of Rockwell's, the sailor especially!
