Java Mermaid by amanojyaku Java Mermaid by amanojyaku
I was inspired to do this piece while staring at my empty coffee cup one day. Here's my homage to the goddess of delicious caffeinated goodness. Cheers! ^__^

A spectacular original idea. A great take on the "mermaid" idea with the separated fin/legs. She's lovely and I love the twisted contrast of such a fantastic creature holding such a marvelously dull piece of most of our daily lives. :) Your imagination is showing and I think I like it!

I love the idea of the combination of a mermaid and feet :D
Always disliked mermaids cuz of that, but so... great!
Really cool!

That's just genious! Sorry I can't spell. Anyway! Sweet idea. The only thing I think of when I stare at my coffee is " You'd better kick in soon other wise I'm screwed."
