Whenever I see sci fi prosthetic designs and they’re like… just human limbs I get incredibly bored… like… how boring…
Why not a robotic mermaid tail, or a centaur leg replacement or even like 8 arm attachments that can independently move on its own? Like why limit yourself to human shapes if you’re designing limb enhancements in a futuristic setting? Imagine the things humans could do if they had the body parts of animals that could fly or swim or traverse different terrains….
The first thing he notices is the light cyan wings and
the humanoid body with bird like feet, clearly a harpy, a child one at
that. Harry thinks the best thing to do is to grab him and pull him
above water as quickly as possible, so air can make it into its
struggling lungs. That was his plan, until he made eye contact with it
for a split second and that’s all it took for a flood of emotions to hit
him like a sailfish.
Or: All harpy Louis has known is the sky, all merprince Harry has known is the sea, except when they’re together.
So I started off drawing @rheill‘s character Naitlya as a mermaid again in the hopes of drawing her more on model, but then i was like, what is she looking at and so I drew another of @rheill‘s characters from Faun, Kewyn. Kewyn is based off of a spearfish.
I stayed up tonight because I just had to make this. Dost always seemed like a mythical creature. They never seemed odd as a faun, or a mermaid, or whatever they felt like being. Now they just get to be an angel.
We’ll miss you Kip. RIP.
It’s funny but I’ve always had a hard time drawing those curls he loved in his wigs so much, and yet this just felt so easy to make. I like to think I got some help with it.
My picture of all mythical creatures (again) having a bit of a tumble as the mermaid wants a diamond :3 The devil and angel picture will take forever to do as photoshop keeps crashing, when it’s fixed I will continue.
Okay, so apparently something needs to be reiterated for those in the back.
Spirits do not fit in your teeny tiny little box of beliefs on what they should be. Just because the mythology says one thing doesn’t mean that every single Spirit has to follow it. I have dealt with a vegan Psy vampire that fed off of ambient energy. I have several Fae in my Family that actually have my best interest in mind. I have an entire pack of hellhounds that are not big black dogs that try to harm people at every chance you get. I have seen a “Black Arts” faun and “White Arts” mermaids (no drowning of men required!)
This is the Spirit world we are talking about. The Astral plane and more. If you can’t wrap your head around the very idea that not everything fits your box then maybe this isn’t the path for you.
