A sea Thief by gamera1985 A sea Thief by gamera1985
Orseis is finally back! [link]

Even though she can hunt fishes by herself, Orseis found it's actually easier to take them from the surface-dwellers when they're not looking. It's not really stealing as she always leaves some nice shiny shells in exchange, something she's seen humans do as well.

She isn't very fluent with human languages, but she can speak like a 5 year old kid. As she really prefers surface food to seafood, she is often hired (or asking for a job) to hunt fish in exchange for some chicken or another piece of meat.

Anyway, I hope the girl won't find out about her thievery, as Orseis already has a bad reputation for it in the village nearby.

Oh. So thats how she steals stuff. That makes a lot more sense than squirming a few hundred metres through a market.

Love it. Perhaps its just the situation they are in, or their faces and body language. Or both, either way very nice.

The whole situation is very cute, and depicted astoundingly well.

It's a great angle to evenly depict each event that is happening. This works great as a wallpaper, was that intended?

I think the image could be more dramatic if done from another angle, but that would require a complete do-over and it probably wouldn't work as well as a wallpaper.
