Mermaid and diver by kinkei Mermaid and diver by kinkei
edit: contrary to popular belief this was not inspired by nor is meant to resemble Disney's Tangled! Its just a long haired mermaid like my other mermaid pics, the fact that she is blond and the guy is brunette was just a coincidence. You all have tangled on the brain, if i'd given the mermaid purple hair and the guy blond, none of these comments would be popping up, i choose these colours as I thought overall it would make a better looking picture!!!
I will more than likely do a Flynn and Rapunzel fan pic after I've seen the film!!

Started livestreaming this but it stopped working... decided to finish it tonight, took ages!!!!
I wanted it to be colourful and eye catching. I think I could have spent longer on the background and certain things but all in all im pleased with it. I hope you guys like. For those of you who started watching the livestream, thanks for stopping by!
Worst title ever! If you guys have any suggestions that would be great!!

For more kinkei mermaids...

Do you know how much drag long hair would cause when swimming?

A lot, let me tell you.

Love this! Great job! I didn't think of tangled when I saw this! People are so rude!
Drawingtutor Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012
I don't think is rude they just think of it cause her hair being really long
UmbranRain Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Student Digital Artist

As the picture goes lower, her hair begins to remind me of seaweed :)

So beautiful!

kitty-copter Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like how her hair blends with the seaweed and the colors you chose.
This is very pretty! Good job.
Koolsnowball Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011
This is cool!
I'm going to describe the obvious here, but I like your choice of putting the human in the water and the mermaid on land, and the little juxtaposition of... that. Yes.
kinkei Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
why thanks! :)

cant choose a favorite..they all good

lovely composition and texture in this. I thought it was really clever with the long blond hair underwater that looks like those who thought i resembled Tangled are just very single minded. Great work.

I really like the vintage look it has, what did you use for the texture?
Spysheep Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
This is quite amazing! The forms, the colors.....damn its awesome
sallyt Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011  Professional General Artist
Just beautiful! The kelp-look hair is a great touch!
FireMarioWii Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Oh the sweet irony of the situation. It truly makes your drawing stand out even more. I love the wonderful cardboard paper like qualities of this. It is so smooth and vibrants with such little difference in color and shape. This is truly a magnificent piece of work here. Good job.
