I am both unhappy and happy with how this turned out TvT
I forgot to post this for mermay oops
This was originally meant for Mermay
But I didn't get around to it so I decided to do this now!
And now I'm attached the possible idea of a TF2 Mermaid Au
There are mermaids living among us, using magic to shape the water to their needs.
Time: 21hrs 48mins
[Image ID: Facing left, a turquoise, navy, and gold-accented sea dragon with two arms and a mermaid-style tail in front of a basic oceanic backdrop. It is posed not dissimilar to a seahorse; upright with its tail beneath it. Its head features feathery axolotl-gill-style appendages, cream in colour with a metallic gold base; there are three such appendages on either side of its head. Its eyes and eyebrows are rimmed in a metallic gold colour. Along its head and rest of its body, the edges of the scales lining its back and forehead are rimmed in a metallic gold (though not the scales along its sides nor underbelly, which is smooth and a lighter turquoise colour. It has a large, wavy crest from its forehead down the the middle of its tail; it gets gradually larger down its neck before becoming smaller at the base of the neck, then grows in size again down the body with its greatest extent midway down its back. The crest is navy with a gilded gold outermost edge, patterned with intermittent gilded 'rays' extending from the body the crest's edge, each ray differing in length. The dragon has a pair of cream/white fins flaring out behind each arm with smaller decorative metallic gold fins at their bases. It has a secondary, large set of fins around their hips styled similarly to its crest, with a smaller set of cream/white decorative fins and two golden scales at their base. Its large tailfin resembling a fan is again styled the same as its crest, albeit with white at its base. End Description]

tumblr tuesday: mermay the revenge way
It's that time again, and you've half a month to get on board if that's something you'd like to do. What's that? Too much Our Flag Means Death? Look, ok. We'll stop shouting about your fanart on Tuesdays when you all stop making it (or, alternatively, when this freakish deluge of good representation inevitably dries out, and we're all back to shipping non-canonical gays). For now, here are everyone’s favorite seafarers as mermaids (yes, even Jim).
...and some nice inspo to finish up: @acepalindrome’s OFMD mermaid varieties.
It's Mermay and somehow I've only ever been able to draw mermaids in the context of pollution.
Every time I take my dogs to the beach, it's covered in trash and dead leopard sharks, rays, and sturgeons. We are witnessing mass extinction in real time.
