I always see mermaids with flowing hair and fair skin, but that just doesn't sound logical to me. So I designed a mermaid with infrared eyes, skin suitable for ocean water, hair that was nice but not long and flowing. Having long hair and swiming is near impossible. (I should know) I gave them webbed fingers, and fins. These are deep sea mermaids caught in the spotlights of a submarine. One is resting the other is curious of the sub.
