Mermaid Concepts by DoodleBuggy Mermaid Concepts by DoodleBuggy
I want to do an animation in the future involving a mermaid. But the thing about mermaids is that they have been done so many times.

But luckily, there are many kinds of fish in the sea. So I looked up a bunch and started trying making them into mermaids. This is the first batch what I came up with.

From left to right and top to bottom: Shrimp Mermaid, Squid Mermaid (my version of a sea witch) Jellyfish Mermaid, Koi Mermaid, Eel Mermaid, Flying Fish Mermaid, Normal Mermaid, Narwhale Mermaid, Fantail Goldfish Mermaid, Seahorse Mermaid, and Angler Fish Mermaid.

What is your favorite?

Loved your concepts!
I wonder...Would you allow me to try to make some out of polymer clay? (of course, idea credited to you (with link to this deviation))
I'm not really sure that i can make it...but i sure would love to try!
The eel mermaid and the faintail goldfish mermaids were my favourite ones ^^

eh? is the horn suppose to be on the butt? I think she looks more like a sea unicorn this way...

For all I care.
Nevertheless, the "horn" is a tooth that is growing over the lip.
