Merpeople by moni158 Merpeople by moni158
I like fantasy creatures etc and I tried to base each type on a different kind of marine animal :D

I dunno...:iconshaplz:

From left to right the animals are Tiger shark, Mantaray, Humboldt squid and Orca :la:

Now back to finishing my commissions 

Pssst, if you give me a marine creature I'll try make a merperson for it :eager:

PS. If you like any of these designs feel free to use them or incorporate them into your own stuff :)

I think it be really cool if you did some kind of ancient or extinct fish, like a coelacanth (not extinct) or an ichthyosaur.

How would a jelly-mer look like? Mer-jelly? Jell-mer? Whatever?
Sakura-Akira Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh gosh! Yaaaay mermaids! 

I love seeing other people's mermaid designs (I have a bajillion in my sketchbook but never do anything with them) - these are super gorgeous. It's so neat how you've combined the pec fins with the arms. I'd love to see you do a Gulper Eel sometime. ^^ :iconimbishieplz:

What about a lion fish? They're very pretty while highly dangerous due to their venomous spines. It's totally up to you about the gender since your the artist, but could you make it male? You have lots of mermaids but I have only seen the one merman and the shark merman(sharkman?).  
leoryff Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014
They all look awesome!  I just have one question.

:iconcaptainjackplz:  Have you ever considered doing sea turtles mate?

Quiero comentar que estoy haciendo una historia con una dimension acuatica y tus dibujos seran un pefecta representacion visual.

No quito derechos de autor ni tampoco las resubire (por respeto a tu autoria)
Se quedaras directamente en mi coleccion

Once I noticed the other pic was titled "More merfolks", I hurried to find out the first ones.

These rock too! The orca is so very nice, and the mantaray is very, very original. Good job.
Elementalbeastie Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like the orca one too!

Your rendition of these types of mermaids are amazing! :D I love the fact that they still look very similar to the creature they're based on, but yet, you can definitely tell that there's a bit of human in them as well. :aww: They're all so very unique and detailed! :D I think your rendition on the Humboldt squid is the most unique and fun. :D Amazing work! :clap:

Doodlehoose1 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Professional General Artist
Great work. I love the variation.
SterlingRaven Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2014  Student Traditional Artist

wow, the orca is my most favorite (orcas are badass!), but the Manta has got to be the most creative one of the bunch, I have never imagined mermantas!


How about trying an Angler fish or other deep sea creatures? The light effects would be awesome on merfolk XD Or a turtle lol (shell might get in the way though)
