I laugh because I really thought another picture of Seamay I did (the first one I did) was going to be the one I used for prints, but as soon as I drew this one, I KNEW that this was the one. Like, I knew-knew it was the one.
The composition is lovely. Seamay laying on a flat-top rock, smiling at you. The coloured version enhances the overall piece with lots of contrasts between warm and cool colours. Something feels very water-like when you look at this. Seamay almost feels like could seduce you at any moment and pull you under the ocean.
I think I ended up giving one of my friends some merchandise of this as a gift one year. I let her choose from my artwork and she loved this one.
I really love this piece myself.
I think it’s pretty in line with Seamay’s personality, unlike Seaborn who had a whole lotta pictures that did not reflect him. Seamay often puts on a smile for those she does not know very well, but when she’s relaxed, she tends to scowl a lot more. I feel like here, she does not know the viewer well, so she offers them a smile. I always really liked that it looks like one of her wings is waving at you, although I don’t think I drew it like that intentionally.
Seamay is both a mermaid and an angel, just like Seaborn. However, Seamay displays more mermaid personality traits than Seaborn.
