I just want everyone that is looking at this oekaki right now to LOOK at how much DETAIL went into this picture. It's astounding, and it must have taken you hours to do (I didn't see how much time you spent on the piece).

Aqua-blue and Orangey-brown are two colors that are not even the slightest alike--in fact, orange and blue are color CONTRASTS, and yet you effortlessly managed to blend them together so wonderfully in her dress, that I can't even begin to fathom how you achieved that gradient.

The scales on the tail and the strands of hair in the mermaid are so beautiful; they seem to glow, in spite of being such a tiny detail. The boat is beautifully furled and cut; I can see the amount of attention you put into the design, and your efforts paid off.

The background is an angry, violet storm, with harsh rain and wind whipping the water and her lovely hair around. The waves themselves look -electric- and dangerous; the contrast between such gloomy weather and the bright colors of the woman contrast well with each other.

I think you did a wonderful job drawing this, and I hope to see even more oekaki from you in the future.

yeah, this is totally gorgeous. i don't think i can do the other two comments or your picture justice, but the amount of energy and the use of color both kick ass. :]
