Lionfish Finished

About a year ago I drew up a sweet little mer-fish, and she was happy. For a while, at least, but she grew sad over time since she didn’t have anywhere to swim or play. So, here she is with her happy little sea home, with plenty of room to play tag and box with seahorses.

These drawings are meant for coloring, so please, feel free to print here off and add some color. If you really love what you did, send me a copy, and I’ll share it with the fiends around the lab!

the Lionfish

I was working on a mermaid concept for the mythology book last night, and realized that I didn’t want your standard fish lady to represent the Undersea Realms. So, I looked up a bunch of different fish and got really into the lionfish. They are pretty amazing to look at, and have some really neat spines, patterns, and colors. I decided that the lionfish would be the basis of my mermaid design, and here she is:

I still need to work out a background image for her, it’ll probably be a shipwreck of some sort or another. My grandfather loved old sailing ships, and I inherited a little of that. I love the haunted mystique of a wrecked ship on the sea floor.
