R-mer studies by Chael R-mer studies by Chael
Some recent mer studies. A flasher wrasse mermaid, a seacucmber, and a mock-fish glaucer. He can squish his cerata around to resemble a fish. Hooray.

I adore the designs and styles of these three they are really pretty and well detailed. I know a little about the animals, I just don't know the mock-fish glaucer. It's really pretty was it designed off some type of fish or something like that? It's really pretty and I've seen several glaucer pictures on your profile but I still don't get if they're types of fish or what.

Apologies if you already found the answer or simply no longer care, but they are based off the Glaucus atlanticus, a type of absolutely gorgeous sea slug. ^^

There's some fantastic detail here, especially in their faces. They all look great, but I especially like the sea cucumber... so squishy-looking :3

Ooh, wow! I really like how this turned out! Those studies payed off. I know the animals you based them off of, and can tell that you did reference them.

I love the sea cucumber boy because of the pose you gave him. And you even show where his "tail" bends so it doesn't look like he's got a lump on him. xD

The glaucer is beautiful. I absolutely adore his fins because of their coloration and their shiny appearance. I can tell that you put the most effort into him. :D But then again, he is a hottie, so of course you wanted to compliment that!
