Mermaid Concepts 2 by DoodleBuggy Mermaid Concepts 2 by DoodleBuggy
More concepts for mermaids in my attempt to redesign the common mermaid.

in this batch (from left to write and top to bottom): Clownfish Mermaid, Manta Ray Mermaid, Seal Mermaid, Ghost Knife Mermaid, Octopus Mermaid, Pufferfish Mermaid, Lion Fish Mermaid, Manatee Mermaid, Axolotl Mermaid, Beta Fish Mermaid, Lobster Mermaid.

I am very pleased with how the Manta Ray mermaid came out. It looks like she is wearing a kimono. I drew fingers on her to show that she has hands coming out of the tips of her fins. It wasn't clear when I kept it blocked in shapes.

So tell me which one is your favorite out of this batch!

I know they're similar to axolotls, but what about an Olm mermaid?

if you were to market these as bath toys you'd be a millionaire overnight. i'd be fighting tooth and claw to be the first in line.

LoL The manatee one would probably cause a funny debate cause manatees are considered to be the inspiration of mermaids due to how they hold their young. A manatee mermaid would probably throw people off the loop.

These are all so cool! I can't really pick a favorite.
I have to say that from my perspective, it kind of looks like the Ghost Knife Mermaid and the Manta Ray Mermaid are ganging up on the Seal Mermaid. :C

I think I like Beta Fish Mermaid, but that's mostly because I think Seal Mermaid would look better as Seal Merman. (Really, Seal Merman would be awesome.)

Man, these are still so cute! I really like the Manta Ray Mermaid and the Ghost Knife Mermaid. They're definitely the coolest. However, the Lobster Mermaid is quite adorable as well. ^-^
