Mermaid-Lover and Red Sonja

By Donato

Here's a new one continuing my fascination with the sea and created for portfolio and gallery exhibition. It is nearly finished, and I plan on hanging the work at IlluxCon in November. My favorite part about this is the ambiguity in the narrative - is she caressing the helmet lovingly or threateningly? I really do not know...

Lastly a sneak peek at a new commission for Red Sonja. I think I have a theme of jilted lovers going on lately :)
