Nobody expects zombie mermaids! They'll just grab you right down to the depths of the ocean. Hey, I made it on time with this watercolor. Having a cold won't keep me from drawing some mer-zombie action!

Excellent execution, Mandy. It turned out even better than I expected. Kudos. I'm never swimming again.

Very nicely done, Mandy. Effective use of watercolor while maintaining an appealing, loose feel. Kudos on the unique take on the concept as well - those zombie mermaids are genuinely creepy.

Yes, Yes, there is a haunting feeling captured here. I can almost feel how cold the water must be. The fate of the pirate doesn't feel too hopeful, and not seeing the pirates face, in a subliminal way, seals the fate of the victim. Nice work - your art is always very compelling to me.

They're awesome. I think I'd like to see nothing but water colors from you.

"Wowie wow wow!" - to quote Christopher Walken - the best I've seen from you if I may say.

Brilliant idea and I'm having a hard time imaging any other medium besides watercolors for this piece. Really love the colors and how they bleed just the right amount. Great pose on the "victim". I feel him sinking for sure. Great flowy shapes with the group of "zomb-aids" too.

If you're like me, you're imagining that's Johnny Depp they're drowning.
