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.

Thank you very much! I really like the neon colors too. It's not enough to burn your eyes out but the perfect amount to give him some character.
I'm looking forward to when Neons appear in the comic.

Yw!
Hee hee, right, neon is great but not in too big-eye-burnin-amounts, which is pretty common around here..
I am looking forward to them too <3

Neons haven't appeared in the comic just yet but you can read it on Smackjeeves. It's called Tsubomi Blue Dreams and a link to it is in my signature.

I've never seen a concept like this for a merman and I really like the dark side of it. I mean there are animals in the ocean that are beautiful but deadly at the same time. I also enjoy the details you have on him and it's just amazing. Thank you so much for your participation in my contest. I really appreciate it! ^^
Good luck sweetheart!

You're welcome and i'm very glad you liked my entry! I wanted him to be dark yet alluring at the same time. Even though he appears human there's really no humanity in him and he's a dangerous animal.

Oh man, this design is so awesome. You did a fantastic job with the coloring and the glow effects, and I can definitely see how prey would be attracted by his good looks.

I mean it looks like he has 4 fingers and then 3 and a thumb. It may just be the perspective, or he's got a thumb on his right hand that looks elongated to look like a finger.
