Siren Song - a Dyptych

I was itching to try my hand at making a dyptych, and for whatever reason this is what popped into my head. I feel like watching some cartoon long ago or maybe one of those great (not so great when you're older) Sinbad movies on a Saturday afternoon and saw this general take on the sirens. I think. Who knows, maybe I just dreamed it. But here it is, combining a love of the girl groups of motown as well as angler fish - Siren Song. I also figured that I would play with combining the comic book elements that I so often love since I was mostly drawing this one and then painting on top anyway, so that's where the skull note came from. Once again, sort of trying to figure out where drawing should stop and painting begin....
