If it looks kinda sudden and you don't understand very well, that's meant to.
Because sometimes people just die.
No one will make sure you are understanding the story.

Alphabet I had to do for school. I wasn't paying so much attention to the letters format, so... sometimes it's not very easy to recognize. And sorry for the "sketchyness" of it. I don't have time to work more on it.

It´s so simply beautiful and sweet ... but ohhhw ... damn nooo, I´m so sad at the end! icon_cry 

Do I have your permission to continue this idea and give with numbers a small happy ending?

Oh god, Y. :blackrose:

... Is she sad at "U" because the fish is gone or because the merman left (?) her? Well, probably both.

this is really beautiful. And the sudden change in dynamic at the X... My heart started to beat faster as my mind was telling me what it could tell. I think it's really well done and different from the usual art's alphabet since there is a story with the order. My favourites letter here might be the O, but i also like the light B.

This is so creative. Combining the alphabet with a story with mermaid and goldfish :clap: And to have it end at the end like that...I now it's sad for things to end but wow...your right, sometimes people just die and it's so tragic. None the less, I enjoyed looking at each letter and seeing the relationships.

And I love it, not only does it go in order with the alphabet but tells a story... At first I just admired the beautiful strokes that made figures and characters but then I realized it kinda told a story between the relationship between the mermaid and the fish and the brief merman. It was a very charming read, and the stylization is wonderful. :heart: Keep up the good work!

The X should be some kind of propeller. A ship propeller. =)
But it's very clear, because I had to adapt it to the font format and... I did not have much time to think of a better design. XD

Oh it's my pleasure!! :' ) I see for the first time to use set of alphabet letters to tell a short story! and you did in such subtle, tasty way... and it's amazing that these letters are not only pretty on the inside (because of little paintings) but their shape is oryginal and lovely too!
and.. uhh dammit, it's amazing how we are focused at every letter.. and it was this moment when I started to be like "hm hm.. it's good good, cute story, nice idea *while looking* and I had a small premonition that something may happen... and then.. oh! what... WHAT.. oooohh
it
uhh I mean..
you made us believe , for a long while, it's just a story of the lovely friendship, and  then the other siren appeared.. and this reconcilation.. and  VERY SUDDEN ENDING~!!
it happened so... so sudden it was hurtful... when I wasn't sure , for a while, "wait, what ..." .. what is this..  
and it's very much like in our live, even the most beautiful lives and stories may die in a short moment, when we are not even aware that the end came so fast, and on the other side, these with the most hurtful stories, have to live so long, carrying enormous amount of pain and regret in their  hearts.
I love that it's not so obvious, both x and y! we are not very sure that this flame of golden fish is going to fade...
Z leaves no doubt, and keeps us coming back again to the beginning, to look at the story for more detail..
I feel touched while writting this to you :' ( 

oh and, it's true that x do not look like a turbine but for me it's great! I think you have to change a shape, to make it more suitable to the other letters, but please, do not make it so obvious and photoreal or smth, it's much more intruguing if we are not sure for a while what's going on! It can work in your artwork because, Y and then Z are explaining the rest.

I rEALLY YY ENJOYED IT! I wish you will make much more creative things like this one! 

oh and it's not my kindness , I am just expressing my admiration to beautiful things, it makes me happy too haha xD
your art made me inspired and excited!! I am grateful for that, THANK YOU!!!

When i looked into the individual pictures with further depth than just the letters they were made out to be, I barely recognized they were letters! Each held their own little story that I was looking into. Very very nice.
