Woo. Sometimes when you sit around and grind hands or feet or anatomy or something you just feel like doing something else for some hours. In our case, that generally results in doing something else FOR someone. That's a win-win situation :3

And for us, that someone right now is :iconobsessedkitten:.

I've spent most of this year painting her other characters, so this time, I felt like digging up something a little bit older :) So all the cred for the design of this girly goes to her, and not me ;]

Soo.. this is Meris, an octopus mermaid.. something xD She's found a bottle with a letter in it, and went to the surface to see if she could find the guy who sent it :]
A blind date on the open seas D:

I liked her remake design ( [link] ), and though I'd have a try at drawing her. Although; i wanted to do that crab-thing in her hair, so I took the long her from the older version, and everything else from the remake :)

Hope you like it Lili :3

*My scanner's elsewhere, so I had to take a photo of it and try to make it decent in Photoshops. it works, but I'll scan it when I get home to my scanner o_o the flash killed a lot of the contrast ;_;
** I like that stomache-necklace thing she's got. It's cool o_o

Woo, glad ya liked, and saved the day :P
She's really cool, yup. As you already know, we're die-hard fans of "the girls", but if they share the first spot, I think this girl might have the second place.
It's such a simple, yet detaild design, with just enough stuff to make her look like a mermaid, whil at the same time she's something else entirely :O

And she's a perfect mix of strange and sexy, without ending up being all tasteless :)
