Purple Mermaid

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Jenny Rowland

I kept seeing mermaids while perusing other people's galleries... so I did one of my own. She has a great expression on her face in the original sketch; looking right at the viewer, one eyebrow cocked, plainly thinking to herself 'um... and you expected some skinny thing in the freezing depths of the ocean?' Didn't quite capture that in the final version, but hopefully I came close.Pencil sketched, painted in OpenCanvas, touched up in Paint Shop Pro.I like her tail.

Oh, this is a fun one... Years ago now, a friend of mine invented a race of aliens and used them to annoy my brother in an AIM conversation. I proceeded to take this extremely silly concept and write a serious story fragment around it -- then I lost it for about three years. This, then, is the story, found, typed up, and edited a bit. I'm actually surprised at how decent it is considering its age. I thought about changing the names -- if you click the link above or take a good look at the names below, you might notice something strange about them -- but in the end decided to leave them. Maybe later I'll change them, but for now I just can't see the names of people and places as being anything but what's below.
