Rose Mermaid by michellemonique Rose Mermaid by michellemonique

:heart: Follow my projects on Facebook!:heart:

Photographer & editor: Michelle Monique
Model: Hazel Rhea
Inspired by Michelle Hoefener's mermaid paintings

No CGI/No painting. Everything in this picture is derived from a photograph. The mermaid tail was made out of paper mache and each petal was hand glued. The rock was made out of chicken wire, covered in paper mache and placed in a sandbox. 100+ hours in photoshop with over 200 layers and a week of building props. You can see the process on my Facebook

If anyone has any title suggestions, please comment! I tend to make my titles too literal :3
For some reason I'm super nervous uploading after a year of inactivity D: I hope my watchers don't hate me for it :< Your encouragement keeps me motivated :hug:

Thank you for the DD! :love: I've been depressed about my work lately and this helped to pull me out of it. Thank you everyone! :blush:
