*this picture is also posted on my deviantART account, Okami-Rain*This was very much a "me" picture. I needed something like this after the week I've had. My mermen are my peace at this point. Drawing them makes me happy.This picture is kind of one of longing. Kogane is a character that is held captive by a circus. Customers generally beleive him to be a human wearing a suit like in other circuses and shows, and he is not allowed to make contact with other workers in the circus. The stage hangs out over his tank and the set up is next to the ocean, so the water flowing in is sea water. This is the setting i drew from underneath (HARD TO DO, MY GOD!) Its coliseum style, with stone benches leading away and slanting back from the edge of the rounded pool. the pole in the center is used for performances and the ring is generally lit fire ( O.Kogane's Stats:Kogane is very shy and quiet. Since he is not allowed to make contact with others, he rarely speaks. During the day, his boss generally makes him stay in a small enclosed area of the tank that is under the main building and is lit from underneath. Age: 18Weight: 200 lbs (most of the weight is in his tail, he is actually quite small for his age)Eye color: Orange-brownHair Color: Blond*Kogane's species is unable to transform and he is unable to survive a long time span of breathing air. This is because gills are a much more efficient means of getting oxygen out of its surroundings, and when using lungs much less oxygen is taken in. After about 9 hours of breathing air, he would become considerable weaker. After 11 he would pretty much be incapacitated and generally would suffocate by the twelfth hour. (I TORTURE my characters)So anyway yeah. This is his story from where he starts out. YES there will be a girl. YES she will be human. YES there will be luff.
