Another sketch dug up from last year. It is unfinished and I have no plans of finishing it, I am happy the way it is. The title is Shiver because she looks like she is shivering [due to the awkward limbs] or her name might be Shiver.
This is for all the mermaid-wannabes. I used to dream being one but I couldn’t even swim beyond 6 feet. I did have a dream a few days back that I learned to swim like a dog and float on my back.
Popular fiction leads us to believe that mermaids are beautiful beings, but some myths say they are monsters. I remember watching Mermaid Saga (Ningyo Shirīzu) on TV and later reading its manga because I was fascinated with its dark story, reminiscent of Osamu Tezuka’s Black Jack. If you are down for some surreal stories, I highly recommend these two, although both are open-ended.
