I decided to upload this now to be on the safe side since I don't want it to get accidentally deleted if it stays on my PC. This is an entry for RuuRuu-Chan
's mermaid design contest.This character is a subspecies of the Noct called a Neon which are a species of merpeople that i made up for one of my comics.
Most Noct are kinda creepy looking and pale since they live at the darkest depths of the ocean. Will eat any and everything. But this guy is whats known as a Neon. Noct stay on the ocean floor because they are very sensitive to light and prefer dark places. Neons on the other hand can travel freely all over the ocean. Are highly intelligent and manipulative.
Usually attracts prey by pretending to be injured or with their good looks . But when they get close they leach a poision from their fingertips that stuns their prey then they drag them underwater to be eaten. ^^
Other mer species generally know to avoid Neons but occasionally a random merperson will cross their path never to be seen again.
Neons are always brightly colored and their eyes and fingertips glow.
