Gotta get that cheese!
An old piece from 2012 I still dig. I was experimenting with comic-like shading.
Inktober 52 2022 - Week 19 - 'Origin'
What would be better for the 'origin' of mermaids than a coelacanth based mermaid? I made this one a bit more humanoid than I usually do to keep it looks a bit like an early sea-humanoid.

Inktober 52 2022 - Week 18 - 'World'
It's Mer-may and here is seahorse mermaid finding her world blurring into ours. I can also picture singing the 'part of your world' song with dark pollution undertones.
She's got plastic flowers on her as I'm slowly finishing up my long term project; using a driftwood reindeer antler (I found around Christmas, and it has what looks like bauble string on it) and covering it in all the plastic foliage I've cleaned off the beach in recent years.
"And there she stood before me, looking up to the oddly-colored sky – the thunderstorm would be here any minute now –; her delicate shape disfigured into a sick joke of Mother Nature which could only vaguely be described as a disgusting mixture of man-wolf and Deep One, yet unrelated to anything known from lore or nature, or within human comprehension whatsoever.

Inktober 52 2022 - Week 17 - Dino
YES I KNOW NOT TECHNICALLY A DINOSAUR DON'T YELL AT ME.
But they lived at the time of the dinosaurs. 8> She came out a bit more pink than I intended, but I kinda of like it now. Like a deadly flamingo. I've always loved Pterosaurs and Ornithocheirus was a favourite after watching walking with dinosaurs when I was younger.
This is a character for Scifer's fantasy dinosaur world. He wanted a rival for his dinosaur princess who has recently spouted *gasp* wings!
Last year, I did something called #MercieMay , where I spent the whole month drawing artwork of my character - Mercie. She's an android sheep nurse from an alternate 1950s where robotics technology is many years ahead of our universe! The company that built her are developing a kid-friendly range of droids, so future generations won't be afraid of healthcare robots! #MastoArt #furryart #Mercie #Sheep
Last Mermaid for Mermay 2021 and this one is dedicated to my friend Zanthia Who is not only the queen of mermaids but also a real-life Zebra (in her hair). This mermaid is based on a Zebra fish (a sea tang specifically, but bits inspired by the river sort too).
The swimming pool had to have that 80's graphic look because that seemed to fit best when thinking of 'swimming pool'.
