Mermaid in the Dark

Mermaid in the Dark by Justin Gedak

Mermaid in the Dark Digital artwork 2020 by Justin Gedak

This is another digital art mermaid painting I finished the other day. I think this might be my favorite one I've done yet! I want to do more with this moody type of lighting. To me it is seems closer to something you'd see in a painting from hundreds of years ago.

This painting in particular is actually was very much influenced and inspired by (one of my favorite artists) John William Waterhouse's mermaid painting.

Looking around online, I don't usually see a lot of mermaid artwork that I really like. Not too sure why that is, because there seems to be so many people out there who love mermaids.

For anyone wanting to sign up to my mailing list, I'm giving away a free full resolution digital download of "Born for Battle". It's a very large image, 9000 x 6750 300dpi, and I figured it would be interesting for people to be able to zoom right in to see the details and brushwork. Also, anyone with access to a good printer can print off their own print of it without having to order anything online.
