Mermaid at Sunset by AkumaAsylum

Mermaid at Sunset
Adobe Illustrator CS6
Time elapsed: approx. 24 hours?

So, funny story, this was originally supposed to be a part of an Art Nouveau series starring some Elemental Goddesses? Well, then I ended up graduating and losing motivation to do ANYTHING. Suddenly, I discovered that nieces have birthdays? Like, every year? So I dug up this half-drawn (more like barely sketched) mermaid picture, re-designed it, and finished it so I could give it to my niece.


Do not use or redistribute without written permission from me, the artist.
I have returned!

Really though, I never actually left--this is just the first thing I thought I should post here in a while. Most of my work has been in my art classes, so...
If you want to actually see my more common work (a.k.a.: the stuff I draw but don't post here) "like" my Facebook page!…
Oh wow, take a break for a few months and dA goes and changes again. Oh well. For those of you who follow me, go "like" my Facebook page! I post more on there...…
Present for Faith: WIP~ by AkumaAsylum
Present for Faith: WIP~
My niece Faith is turning eight soon, so I wanted to make her a present. Her party is Mermaid themed, so I figured "HELLA I'LL DRAW HER A MERMAID!"

I have discovered that I hate drawing mermaids aha

Since I haven't uploaded anything in FOREVER. I also decided to upload the crappy work-in-progress sorry for any damage to your vision

Medium: Digital
Program: Adobe Illustrator CS6
Time: Approx. 7 hours 

All art belongs to me, AkumaAsylum.

Hello all, my name is Akuma. I had an account on here previously under the name AkumaLight, but I am no longer going to be active on it.
I enjoy art as a hobby, and people tell me I am pretty good at it. I draw, paint (badly might I add), sculpt a bit, write short stories, write poetry, and sing.
I love religious, gothic, detailed, colorful, gloomy things. My current obsession is with mythical creatures, mainly Fairies.
My passion for art and music flows very deeply, and I am pretty easy to get along with.

Happy Browsing!

So, I am graduating from High School in June, and I am FREAKING OUTTTT!!!

I have little to no clue what is going on anymore, and everything is rushing past me. Lucky for me, I already was accepted into the college I am planning to attend, but that just adds a plethora of other fears.

If I fade in and out of activity, it is probably because I forgot to upload (you have no clue how often this happens. It is really sad actually) and I will try to be better about it.


Thank you all for thinking I am a good enough artist to have either deviantWatched me, or viewed my profile. It is really appreciated!
