Finnfolk are arcane creatures who live in the dark, cool waters of the Nordic Sea, mostly nearby the Faroe and Orkney Islands. They are not that friendly towards its inhabitants and are supposedly in answer for the several abductions which took place throughout the last decades. Those dangerous water creatures are treacherous and are in a posession of great skills, mostly shapeshifting. Pale, with gloomy faces, finnfolk live in the beautiful underwater castles with the glowing rainbow seaweed.
Recently I launched a personal project dedicated to mermaids all around the world. I conducted a major research on where mermaid legends were (and are) spread across the world and decided to create a book on this topic with my personal illustrations. This is one of them. Check out #darkellaine_mermaids to see all posts, sneak peaks and illustrations from the book in progress.
