This is a collection of mermaid sketches (ballpoint pen) I did during various seminars and lectures. The armored mermaids are mermen.

Things I think I'm really getting better at: hair, hands, normal-sized boobs

Things I really have to train: armor, water

Yaay! *dances*

Wouldn't the armor be to heavy to swim in underwater? O.o...

Come to think of it...the only useful weapons would be a harpoon and the magnificent trident thingy!

Maybe cannons too, but they need fire to start and lighting a match underwater is very difficult ^_^

*mind wanders off to think of other fascinating things*

:-) Roland Gromes replies: "Well, the armor is made of fish skin and sinews. Light, flexible and at least much more resilient then merman skin (It also impresses the merchicks).

And note that the spear and shield have been constructed in a streamlined form so they don't hinder swimming that much.

Maybe I should construct and underwater spear throwing catapult for them. Just to shoot the others in the long time those need to start their cannons ;-)"
