Well, I was watching the little mermaid the other day, and I had just looked at this Little Mermaid fan art by Chael Unnell and I felt inspired to draw ariel. And then I decided to draw some of my own mer-people around her. Unfortunately coz she is still in it, I shouldn't upload it to SF&F, and so I am uploading it here. And I decided not to be too lazy this time and coloured it nicely, tho the background is still fairly boring, and a lot of detail was lost when I reduced the image :'( pity that.
Well anyways, about MY characters that I have here; Both of them don't actually exist as of yet, but are a sort of preliminary sketch for an aquatic race that dwells in my elemental story. The male one, up the top, is a deep-sea dweller, hense his extreme paleness as not much light gets down there. He has trippy eyes, as its very dark down there, but he is effectively blind in any other environment. but to help cope with that, he has extra senses.. ish. better hearing and touch etc, something akin to sonar. He has harder and more scales over his body than the female I drew, because of the pressure of deep water, and I think he has alge and little plants or animals growing in his hair. Now the female is a shallow dweller, and I don't really have much to say about her, cept that I think she is pretty and has a pretty red tail :3
