Aicaya is a caribbean legend about a young woman, a very beautiful one, always with a beautiful flower in her head, A hibiscus. all the men in the village wanted her for themselves even those who were engaged or married. The girl was an expert swimmer and was common to see her on the beach across the waves, while the men neglected their duties, hypnotized by the beauty her naked body. The village women, tired of this situation, conspired together to get rid of her. A night without men noticing, went to the house of the girl, she was taken as prisoner and carried to the beach"If you love the sea so much, go there and never come back!" The girl was obligated to live in the sea. Sometimes she come back but then the woman in the town make her go away. With the years, she become part fish but her memory fade away. The hibiscus in her head, remind her as she belongs to the land. Thats why she keep going to the beach and the ships in the ocean and the men still are hypnotized by her beauty, drowning into the sea.

Your art is awesome. This is a fact.
But I have a question.
Do the people at legendary visions tell you what the subject in each of these images should look like in detail? Or is that all left up to you?
Case in point...If this is a carribean legend why is she white?
It's the Carribean. A sun drenched nation.
Not to say that there aren't white or light skined individuals over there, but more thn likely she'd be a native of one of the islands and would look along the lines of a darker skinned beauty as opposed to the lighter skinned Euro image picured.
