Modern Mermaid

modern_mermaid

My Mom likes to challenge me. At one point she mentioned that she never saw me try to depict a character with non-human streaks in their appearance. I imagine she was thinking of a shape-shifting druid with the lightest hint of bear or wolf in her face, or something like that. The first thought I had was mer-folk.

I don’t think mermaids would be skinny. I have seen Olympic swimmers. Spending your entire life under water in an environment much more dense than air must end up showing on one’s physique. Thus I present my depiction of what I like to think present day mermaids would actually look like.
