Hey guys =)!

Here is the finished version of the mermaid, Mei Shui, "The Koi Empress" =)!

My background story for Empress Mei Shui:

Mei Shui is a mythical empress that once ruled China in a forgotten fairytale.  She is usually only seen in her human form, but is commonly referred to as "the Koi Empress", because it is said that her true form is a koi mermaid.  It is a rare sight to actually see Mei Shui in her koi mermaid form, swimming in the lakes near the palace.

Someone is stealing your art! A girl is selling this picture in a coloring book on Amazon! Here is the link.

If you scroll down to bottom of page, look at the customer ratings where customers post pictures from the book, you will recognize yours when you see it!
