Added the base which then hide some of the tail so added a larger tail to be more prominent.

There have been a few mermaids posted on facebook so I was having a play.

Attempting some artwork, the body is a 350 and would have a
slight kink but I needed to keep straight for picture.

This one the head and body are not attached, the body is actually
attached to the back of the hair. Plus trying a 260 for the body section.

Then using the 321 for body and splitting the lilac so it looked more like boobs.

I still think it needs an upper blush top body section.

I only came up with this on spur of the moment but the head and hair
are taken from the princess design posted onto BalloonTube this
month. Hopefully you will be able to work the rest out.
