...or, the alternative title, Why Mermaids Are a Myth. A while back I had come up with this idea that mermaids only allow themselves to be seen when a ship is sinking. It is their way of mourning all those who are about to die. Started it last year and didn't get around to actually working on it until a couple of days ago. Referenced myself for the upper body, about 7 hours in all. Maybe I ought to have spent a bit more time on it? Oh well, hope you like it :) c&c welcome.
