Mermaid Concepts 5 by DoodleBuggy Mermaid Concepts 5 by DoodleBuggy
Man, I never thought I could create so many!

From top to bottom and left to right:

Parrot Fish mermaid, Catfish merMAN, swordfish mermaid, clam mermaid, neon fish merMAN, barreleye fish merMAN, sea urchin mermaid/man I can't decided honestly) Hydra Mermaid, Waterfall jumping mermaid, sea slug mermaid.

I decided to make the neon fish look like the glam rockers of yonder years and the urchin into a heavy metal mermaid or sorts. I thought the parrot fish would make a groovy looking mermaid and I went that. Gonna do a punk rocker-esk mermaid in the future based on a deep sea fish.

I recently found a fish called the barreleye fish that has a see-through skull and I added that cause its freaking cool. The clam mermaid I made between a mix between Jessica Rabbit, and Fluttershy. I *sorta* based the waterfall jumper off of Chell from Portal. I started running out of actual fish so I went to mystical sea creatures for hydra mermaid

As always, please tell me your favorite and thank you everyone for the suggestions!

the clam one is adorable.
I just realized that in real life many of these would look horrifying, but you've managed to make them all look so cute and squishy.

Missed a line of your description when I initially read it but I thought your Hydra mermaid was based on the real life animal Hydra. [link]

The neon fish merman reminds me of Ziggy Stardust.

I love the clam because it's it looks so cute and shy :heart: and the neon fish because I love glam rock and hair metal. He looks a bit like a pink Noel Fielding to me ^_^

I really like all these mermaid concepts, they're so cool! They're well done and I like how you don't just go with 'normal fish' you also choose things like clams and sea slugs which makes things all the more interesting :)

Clam mermaid is my favorite! I just love the idea of it, and her curious pose, peeking outta her clam, its so cute. Lovely designs.

The sea urchin was an interesting idea. Is a barnacle mermaid in the works?
I remember seeing the barreleye in National Geographic a few years back. Really freaky and cool at the same time.

Gawd, I love all of your mermaid concepts so much! The clam is one of my favorites so far!
#46 looks like a lady I always run into at Wal-Mart. No joke.

These are totally awesome, just don't let Lady Gaga see them. She's probably desperate for ideas in odd clothes and these are way too original.

I love how my first thought of #48 was 'JEM'.

I think 47 & 52 are my favorites of this page.
