2000 years ago in the land of the rising sun there lived a great civilization called the Sakana-jin, or the 'fish people' after the sakana (fish) that they loved to eat.
They would fish day-in and day-out, every day harvesting the two seas around their moutanious country. And slowly the sea's grew empty of life.

The great water spirits who inhabited the murky blue water grew angry as all their fishy friend disapeared one by one to feed these greedy human above. The ocean was deathly quite now where once the fishes, snails, shrimps and other sea creatures use to sing and laugh. The water spirits were lonely and angered and they ploted against the Sakana-jin.

One stormy November night as the city slept and dreamed of fish pop pies, the earth around them split apart and the city along with it's sleeping residents slip into the churning ocean. That was the last we know about this once great civiliazion.

Many people since then have thought that was the end of the Sakana-jin but every now and then a fishermen will come to shore with fantastical tale of beautiful creatures which looked like men and women on their top half but with tenticals where their legs should be. Most people scofe off these tails as drunken sailors tails and others as warnings that monsters lived in the ocean and the children should be keep away from the waves, but a small few believe that these mystical creatures do exist.

Are these strange creatures the Sakane-jin? Is this the sea spirits crule joke on them? There are many questions to this story but the not solid answers. It's up to you, do you believe?

This is an Aquanimph I did for Kim Van Gampelaere, a fellow Elfwood artist. Aquanimphs are copy righted characters of Kim, all right resirved.

This is a really nice picture except for the body parts showing

1 Kim Marie McPhee replies: "Why? A little nudity never hurt anyone. After all, how do you bath if not naked? ;-)"

except for all the boy parts showing...? It's a permaid type creature...

You might like Rumiko Takahashi's manga "Mermaid Scar" and "Mermaid Forrest". They're sort of based on Japanese mermaid legends.

12 Kim Marie McPhee replies: "I've read those stories, but this was not based on those. This was based on Kim's Aquanymphs, half human half squid/octopus creatures.
I'm not saying she was the first and only person to draw something like these, it's just that I drew it for her on her characters when she was alive.
A moment of slience for Kim please,...
But I loved those Mermaid Scar mangas, I want to do fan art for them sooooooo badly, but they never come out just right.
Thanks for the comment!"

You said you didn't use green but she looks geen to me, I love the sad feel this picture has, it's wonderful Kim.
I bet Kintje is so happy to see her characters being adopted by so many it's a wonderful way to become imortalised. 2

1 Kim Marie McPhee replies: "Oh I drew the original with a pencil and later tinted it with photoshop,....but didn't up-date the bio. Ohps!I'm glad to say that Kimjth got to see this one before her death. She was a very nice girl, and Elfwood has never seen her equal since then. RIP."
