A Siren's Call by Zanariya A Siren's Call by Zanariya
This is a remake of an old painting ([link]). It is also my entry for the "Draw This Again" competition :D I'm really happy with the new painting, although i wish i had more time to work on it... but so many deadlines... i... can't... *faints*

Mermaids are EVIL! >8D

Hi there!

Where can I purchase this Zanariya? My boyfriend is a Merchant Marine Captain and calls me his Siren all the time. We saw this and he loved it.  Please let me know:)

LOVE that your focus and coloring make it so that I clearly will not see the man in the foreground until it is far too late. I am entranced! Great job!

I looked at the mermaid and thought "Ohhh, Nice!" Then I saw that dead man and I was like "I so totally love this!" Mermaids are supposed to be evil, that is what they are c:<

I have some evil mermaids in my colorized drawings and literature (extraterrestrial), but I also have charming attractive mermaids in others.

Creepy drawing, but well made. But aren't sirens, according to Greek myth, bird women?

Zanariya Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! And yes, in fact, you're correct. At first, the defenition "siren" was a bird with the large face of a woman. Later that defeniton changes into the figure of a woman with the legs of a bird, and they would play intruments and sing with beautiful voices to lure nearby sailors. Then that defeniton would change again, so that not only the voice, but also the appearence would attract sailors. If you look at old paintings, you will somtimes see beautiful (nude) women near/in water, luring the sailors to drown. I don't know for sure, but i think that the siren-mermaid thing is a quite modern interpretation :) What do you think?
