  • Title: Sirens
  • Artist: Azeizel
  • Description: I drew up some Sirens, It's unfinished but I got bored with it-- so anyways! Sirens aren't mermaids they don't look like them either, A Siren was usually pictured as half bird half woman. *In this case they are mostly bird*
    They dwell on high cliffs and wait for sailors, warriors etc. on boats.
    The tinting is through photosucket - I mean.. bucket XD

  • well technically both are true, since they are mythological creatures there is no real image but to the greeks they were bird women more associated with the sky as stated in the description but in folklore later on they evolved to looking like fish and associated with the ocean, that is why in spanish mermaid is translated as Sirena. Do you see the resemblance in the two words? Siren=Sirena

  • @ Murder_U_Dead. Sirens are incorrectly portrayed as mermaids. I usually do some research before I go and try to attempt to draw something. Basically what Sunflower said is 'true'.

  • Oh, And Harpies were literally Fugly birds with the breasts of a women. that's what harpies are- so imagine a giant buzzard with like.. six breasts- that was a harpie, NOT a siren

  • Well according to the original Greek Mythology- they WERE bird Women that lived on High Rocks at the sea & they sang men to their deaths by swooping along the ship. So all of you are fails who think Siren=Mermaids, no mermaids were fish women of the sea- sirens were evil bird women who killed sailors & ate them

  • They look like Harpies to me, STILL AMAZING! Sirens live in the sea and lour sailors to their deaths by singing..... Im not much on Greek mythology
    so I cant tell you weather they are sirens or not.
