Once I saw a writing prompt where Mermaids were the women thrown off ships when sailors got afraid because having a woman on the boat is bad luck. And as they sink to the bottom, legs tied together, they change slowly until they can breathe, until they can use their tied up legs to swim. And they drown sailors in revenge, luring them in by singing in their husky voices still stinging from the salt water they breathed. 🌙🔮

So, ever since I’ve been thinking about painting a cool witchy mermaid haha and decided to give her Willow Smith’s face, because she looks just as badass ♡ (and she reposted my art on her Instagram so I guess I’m freaking out haha)
