The fiercest of the guardians of the city in the sea were known to shear their long and lovely locks. In their place they would cultivate a sea anemone. As it grew they would become accustomed to its shocks and stings, until their relationship was symbiotic; the mermaid would provide a place for it to grow wild and large and the anemone would offer a deadly deterrent to any who came near.

I am thinking of turning this one into a painting. She was a lot of fun to draw. Thoughts?


birthday mermaid compilation, featuring mermaids from voidbat (the bigger one in the back) and iatrogenic (the four smaller).  there are actually cake pictures from the early combined celebration before i left new york but those are on a different device and therefore will end up a separate post probably.
