Imagine you're on a boat in the middle of the Caribbean ocean- and for whatever reason you fell over board. There amongst the bubbles and froth as you flail about that's where you see THIS guy! what would go through your head?
This is Ural my little Merboy OC. He's about 14 in this picture accidentally taking his investigation of humans a bit too closely. I want to make a short story about him. He's a flying fish btw.
Note: This picture was a WIP for MONTHS! I made it LAST year- the line art at least and have been going back to it every so often. While I was working on a double meme piece I realized I had only a tiny bit to finish so here it is.
Now back to my REAL work >w>,.. I finished it listening to this song- I often came back to it while I did this..
I think the idea of a flying fish merman is pretty neat! I've been considering the idea for a possible character myself. Beautifully done with the colors and the way the light shines down into the water. I really like how Ural's flight fins turned out too. They're such a lovely shade of blue. Whenever I think of a flying fish merperson, I picture them with their flying fins on their backs like angel wings with the supporting fins near the hips. I find it interesting that you decided to place Ural's main flight fins on his hips instead.
