More Messy Mermaids! by tiffanyturrill More Messy Mermaids! by tiffanyturrill
They're probably a bit less sexy than you're used to...

Just a quick and dirty sketch for Mermaid Week, which was last week? Yeah. Something.

No, they don't look too much like girls with fish butts. I just wanted to play with actually having the creatures look like they're aquatic - which humanoid features are definitely not. I was also toying with different physiological traits and different ecological niches for the "maids."

For a "messy" work, these sure are great! If I may ask, where these made with a sharpie pen and watercolor? Just Curious.

super cool, some of them appear very similar to seabirds! its interesting to concider that prehaps semi aquatic bird species could possibly adapt entirely for underwater life, neat designs!

Fishies! Some really great designs here. I see how they can work, and yet they're still wonderful and fantastical. That shark looking one, though. That expression! Eugh!

it was last week. I heard about it via Carsten Bradley, but I know he got it from an animation artist gal's blog.... I just can't remember her name!
