Mermaid Anatomy


Hey everyone, this is part of my 'Creating Immersive Creature Design' tutorial

I really hope you like it!

I really wanted to show how you can push the boundaries of creature design and still have something that looks like it ha a sense of reality to it. This mermaid was designed as part of 'MerMay'

First Question: Are these creatures sapient?

If they are not...let me just say that the tail looks like good eating!

Now this is wonderful! I never really imagined a mermaid like this before, possibly the most original concept of them I could find, all else I can say is excellent work:)

It is really exciting to see how you thought through the anatomy of the creature, and the use of color is subtle but very appealing.

You my friend, just got a new watcher. I love this kind of innovating creature design.
