    Sewer Mermaid King/Queen
    out of suggestion thread - thx. gethsemane
    Beneath city streets, among waste and giant long-forgotten alligators, there are mermaids. They may not be the pretty little fish-women of myth -they are urban, begrimed and toughened and adapted to survive in the harsh environment beneath the city- but they are mermaids nonetheless. This is their king/queen.
    Now... concept!


    ______________

    Topic elements:

    1 = mermaid
    2 = urban
    3 = king/queen


    Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.

    ROUND COMMENTS:
    Mermaids are more popular then shemales... or textmans... or... wait.. the feeeeeaaaaries. This is very dissapointing for me .. as half-vampire. Mermaids and our vampiric kind never were in peace. But i'm a good guy - you guys know that.
    Enough blahblah - seems that no sleep for more then 2 nights in a row makes me talk funny.

    as a reminder for the new guys - this activity is aiming for a professional approach. ( i know i don;t sound serious.. but after some sleep i'll be back being the bastard)

    CHOW #49 - VOTING - Sewer Mermaid King/Queen

    <gurgling respirator sounds come from up ahead>
    <Rubber talon hands grasp you tightly as you hear what could only be a drowning voice>
    Come before me “Landman”
    Gaze upon all that was once beautiful both above and below the seas…See me for what I am now… see what has become of my children.
    <sick yellow light streams down from the grates above>
    For it is your world that ruins ours… you that pollutes the very life that we lead, your wastes, your garbage, your chemicals…
    Just as you have now started to refine water…bottle a safe version for ingestion…so to must we purify the filth that you have left us…so that we may even take a breath.
    <a pause and a gurgling>
    No longer do you feed upon the fish that we both shared… now only cancerous schools can be found leaving my children to starve.
    Low “Landman”… what shall we do with you now… send you back with a message, or make a message out of your arid hide…perhaps we shall see how long you can stay under our muck of an existence.

    urban sewer mer-lady!

    Ok I jumped on this one because I've been doodling mer-people lately. So, a quick sketch before I go to work... I'm glad I got a start on it though, maybe I'll actually finish it argh!

    Will prolly add more props to make her more "urban" - funny the entire time I was doing this I couldn't stop thinking about the sewer mutants on Futurama hehe.

    Attachment 48813
    (edit) - made her more of a "queen bee" of sorts - just a quick sketch, the pink things are supposed to be large egg sack things.

    Attachment 49082

    C & C appreciated. Can't wait to see these...

    Okay, it's updated and I'm thinking, wow, this looks like crap...that's what I get for taking meds and trying to draw. /sigh
    2nd Update: A little less sucky...but still...
    3rd Update: Okay, getting there, not as mad at myself now.

    Sewer Mermaid Queen

    trevor and Wafflehouseninja - most promising WIPs so far.
    mrgrumble - awesome pencil work!

    For my own pic I wanted the mermaid to be situated in stumbling darkness with a single, intense light source.
    The rendering and anatomy is a bit off and the head looks somewhat daft, but I've been pressed for time lately, so this is what I ended up with (not really satisfied with this one).

    Not as impressive as the king but she compensates with cruelty towards anyone who dares to disturb the merfolk waters.

    my first entry in this comp. Here is the rough plan, kind of a redesign
    of the original mermaid concept ie with a tail.

    CHOW #49 - VOTING - Sewer Mermaid King/Queen

    my latest wip. Its coming together slowly. Friday 17th Nov

    Vanvalen - great colors really fishy and magical
    mrgrumble - something on another level altogether you should try the daily sketch forum as well.
    Migsta - great render, really damp looking, I like the hint of breasts and female organs. I think
    the legs let the piece down however compared to some of the others in context with the topic.
    The lights on the thighs are a very good idea.

    Ok so here's my WIP. I'm not sure if I'll have time to finish it but I'll try.

    Hes a devourer-god-king that must be appeased more than served. I initially wanted to put a fat fertility-goddess of a queen at his side but I know I wont finish it with that many figures.
