Song of the Sea by allison712 Song of the Sea by allison712
Wow, I have stayed up waaay too late finishing this :faint:. But I'm so excited! And really nervous ^^;. This is my first photomanip and I'm entering my first contest! Yikes! So any feedback would be wonderful...but please go easy on me. And pleeeease full view.

So this is for :iconliam-stock:'s *Violin Contest*. My original idea was to draw this picture, and it would've turned out quite differently (actually, I'd still like to draw it). But I believe the contest rules state digital art only, so that's why I gave this a whirl. I'm not really sure what the story of this girl is, and I sort of have a bunch of ideas floating around my brain, but I'll leave most of the interpretation up to you :) She's kind of like a mermaid or siren, because she lures sailors to their death with her song. But her song is played on her violin. I think she's the spirit of some poor girl who drowned in a shipwreck...maybe even in a shipwreck caused by a siren's song :D So now she is fated to sit playing night after night. I dunno. It's almost 12:45am...cut me some slack, lol.

Thank you for the tip...I'll shrink it down a bit. I just wanted to make sure the details were visible :)
