All my mermaid artwork

There are many stories of dragons. Wild, blatant fancies and ancient legends of fire and eggs, mist and flame. Of taloned mosters and reptilian mages. Of cunning wyrms and low, crawling beasts. Some tell of mute, ferocious animals, children of earth and flesh. Others proclaim sly creatures of darkness, lurking venom and cruelly slitted eyes. Yet others laud the gracefully scaled spirits of the air, the bright and majestic roaring flames, the shining talons, the clever speeches and shining hoards…

This is not one of those.

This is the Child of the Sea, who melds with water, and flows with the waves. This is the Daughter of Salt, shining and precious, invisible in the vast seas and yet hidden in every drop. This is the seadragon, who brings the water to life with her turbulence, creating kinspirits from the froth and foam of her passing, and from sleek shining water, and the glimmer of sunlight on a droplet forms her scales…
This is the leaping splash that startles sailors, the dancing krakenmaid flying out with the spray. Old, old and deep as the seas, resting in the dark waters before the first fish formed from her tiny kin, and young, young and new formed with every wave.

Everywhere and nowhere, she leaps up, dragging forth wings out of waves, dancing on the swells, whirls and rises and falls, crashing water, shining scales…

You will never see her. Be grateful for a quiet life.

Dragonlings slightly easier to see in the WIP but more have been added since. Have you seen them?

This was one of my longest and I enjoyed it a lot, and learnt a lot, and …well, there’s a part of my head still rushing around in the waves there

    Hey there, if you remove this from the Eerie and Enchanting Group and then re-submit it, then I can feature it for being in the top 10 in the Magical Mythical Fairytales Challenge

    I’m only asking you to do this since there are 140 or so pages of artwork in the group and it’s been hard to find your work amongst all of them. So if you re-submit it then it will be right there for me to feature it.

    Thanks!
