In this skin, I wanted to capture the moment where Sedna emerges with her fish's tail and bloodied hands. I put a lot of effort into her tail. I wanted to capture the shimmering and glistening quality of a fish's scales. Instead of tropical, warm water mermaids, I wanted her to look half-frozen in the arctic's water. The only part of this skin that I am not satisfied with is the back of her hair.

If you would like a more traditional mermaid, I have created a version without bloodied hands:

I spend roughly 8-10 hours on this skin, so please diamond it if you feel it should be a finalist. Thanks!

Disclaimer: I know people will comment on this, but I have run this skin through the other mods and they do not feel that it is inappropriate. She is not 'anatomically correct', so our nudity rule does not apply (same as with 'base' skins).

I like it, but I don't really like how hard the back of her hair is, it should be like softer and more shaded like the back.

Sedna was mentioned and seen a few times in the Last Dragon Chronicles. Read it

I understand your disappointment, and your skin was worth a winner in my opinion, but so were many others this time. It was a great concept, and very well designed. I especially like the fishtail, your shading makes it look like actual scales. One thing I have to critizise is how the main part of the skin consists of one color only. I know this was intended and it does look good, it just lacks a bit of color-variety.

nice job! I just feel like the darker shades on the side of the legs (where the highlight should be) make it look too noisy.

No, I haven't been entering contests since the Monster in the Closet. I really want others to have the experience of winning. I was hoping a category for past winners would be created where we could enter a skin to participate but not have it count other than for a badge.

I-I try to stay away from skinning nowadays.
Felt like a waste of time as I didn't see myself improving, and now I can't even create a palette or a base without being disappointed and frustrated with it.
OMG SOOO AWESOME!
