Daily Deviation

Gulper Merman Concept by ~RyomaNinja A fantastic take on the merman, with great scale texturing. The background is great and adds a lot to the over all atmosphere of this piece. ( Featured by Lyricanna )

Ooohh this is very creepy. Excellent work! I especially love the eel-like head with all the teeth, really pounds the 'horror movie' aspect home.

You just took the Little Mermaid and mixed with the stuff of nightmares...and you are totally awesome for doing that! Still, I have to ask, what is that thing in it's belly?

That, my dear friend, is what I think is a very unfortunate sailor-turned-dinner...

Omg i love this! The background really adds a lot to it and seems like you took a REALLY long time on. I love the colors and the lighting and most of all the concept! Is a nice refresher from the typical "mermaid"/"merman"

So, you're a sailor and you've decided to romance that hot, fishy babe on that yonder rock. You're getting pretty far with her and she's just about to pull a Disney move and grow a pair of legs when she mentions off hand "I have a boyfriend." So what, you think, he's probably some mythological pretty boy. Screw that chump.

And then this fellow shoes up...

When attempting to make time with Mythological hotties, just make sure to remember that the male of the species ain't always as nice to look at.

For instance, in Norse Mythology female frost giants are said to be smoking hotties....but their daddies and husbands are humungous monster men who like to pick fights with gods when they're bored.

Nymphs from Greek Mythology are said to be incredibly beautiful but if you wrong them, you face the wrath of the river god who fathered them. And when your job description has the word "River God" in it, you can guess he ain't no slouch.
