Personal Quote: Do it like you mean it.


This probably would have made a good pole, but I'd like to hear some of the reasoning.  So I like drawing mermaids on occasion, and while it's easy to give them the classic shell top, or the arguably more risque starfish top, what would make a good top for a freshwater mermaid?  Freshwater clams and mussels are very small, and something like the pebble 'shell' built by stoneflies might seem odd.

This made me think...(yeah, run for cover)...

A little cursory research led me to the ongoing debate between 'modest' and 'natural' mermaids.  Apparently the 'modest' mermaid is a somewhat recent thing (as the Little Mermaid statue in Holland is topless).  So now I'm curious as to the general preference (mostly the opinion of the ladies actually, this is part of a larger question of what sort of things women would create in the genres typically geared toward Nose really, I'd like to see Nose Art as a woman would create it, and not necessarily a woman who appreciates Pin Ups)
Heh, title says it all.  :D
