This being began it's evolution when I saw a very stylized drawing of a mermaid. I thought it's hair looked a lot like tentacles, and was immediately inspired by the idea. After a bit of sketching I realized the similarites with the mythical gorgons, so I decided this should to be a more ihuman and sinister kind of mercreature, and threw in some more cephalopod features. Thus was born the sea gorgon, an ancient, mysterious and lethal inhabitant of the murky depths.

This is the shiznit! It's what mer folk probably really looked like....sooo creative!

A very good picture, I love the colours you use, the way you render lights and shadows. But I think the lower body is too short. A longer tail will be better.

Wasn't Medusa a sea nymph? I know she was cursed by Athena for having an affair with Neptune . . .

That’s so awesome. I love realistic nonhumanoid merpeople. I usually base mine off seals, to make mammilian sea dwellers, but your cephalopod merperson is so believable looking!
