.: Kiss from a Mermaid by Sahtori-Kamaya .: Kiss from a Mermaid by Sahtori-Kamaya

It all started in 2004
[link]
Then I revised it in 2006
[link]

Last year I decided to work on it but after 2 months of hard strugling with her face I gave up.
After watching 'The Cove' which had a huge inpact on me I decided to continue. I had help of *evana for the 'kissy' face.
Because immediatly when I opened the old file, I noticed I was getting stuck on the same part. So thank you. :heart:
To be honest drawing a 'fluffy anthro' kissing with eachother is really harder then it looks.
Thank you *dolphy for pointing out my 'dolphin' mistakes since you know so much about the anatomy of dolphins, better then I do. :heart:

I love dolphins always have always will. They are amazing creatures even though some think they aren't. Of course dolphins belong in the wild. When I saw that movie and realised that dolphins in captivity get a daily dose of 'medication' to be "happy" to entertain 'US' I cried and I cried even harder when they played the song on the background: 'Smile'

What's going on in this picture. Sahtori aka Goddess (as I notice most of you call her) just had a swim with his young dolphin. I named him : 'James'
And she's saying goodbye to her young friend who'll return to his pod.

To be honest I didn't knew either to 'dress' Goddess or not. So just to dry her furr I decided to put her skirt around her body. So you don't see any 'naughty' bits (though Goddess never shows 'naughty' bits, she's covered in furr)

This drawing will be for sale on A5 formats 10 euro a piece without my 'DIGITAL' signature on it. 2,50 extra to send it to your house. Note me for buying this art. It's printed with my OWN printer and has my HAND signature on it.
The money goes to my treatment as you know I have cancer.

My last message to everyone is ...
Respect the ocean and it's living creatures. Let them live... Let them be free...

Mermaids and Dolphins, two beautiful creatures that I've always adored, along side with Dragons and Unicorns, this piece of art is very beautifully done, how the Mermaid is kissing the Dolphin is very sweat and shows the bond between the two species.
