...well, this started out as a simple work sketch and...it didn't get much further than that!
Ah well, maybe I'll try again later. But, I think they're fun to draw. I like underwater creatures. The movement and the weightlessness is always fun to try and convey.
Anyway, this falls in the category of my Serpentine
characters. I guess the races would be:
Naga - Snakes both aquatic and terrestrial (must breathe air)
Mer Mammals - Dolphins, orcas and seals (must breathe air)
Mer Fish - Fish (the typical mermaid) (must stay in the water)
Mer Sharks - Sharks (must stay in the water)
