Goblin Shark Merman: Uncontroled Anger by crystal-of-ix Goblin Shark Merman: Uncontroled Anger by crystal-of-ix
Thanks :iconsircrocodile: for the suggestion of a goblin shark merman ;)

Companion Pic: [link]

A lone outcast merman is chained to the depths of the sea for killing one of his own kind in a fit of rage.
His punishment: he is slowly becoming a full goblin shark, except he will have all the feelings and memories of his past life.

Who said all merpeople were pretty?

Pic (c) me ;)

I'm so sorry, that I comment so late... I promised to tell you something about this picture.
You told me you submitted it to the critique folder, to see how could you improve it (or something like that).
And I think the merman is really good idea.
I think if you want, you can improve it technically.
You can try some deeper shadows (and add the missing shadows). That would give him a more 3D look.
But you draw his expression well, and the background story is interesting too :)

Yeah, you're right about the shadows :)
He is kind of...light. Unfortunately that's the colour of an actual goblin shark, but I think adding the shadows is a good idea :)
I'll take note of it for his mate, who I will hopefully be posting soon :)
Better late than never ;)

It's a female :)
Technically I have two others, but I made the mistake of gluing the lineart in a book :(
Would you like to help me wit the next mermaid/merman?
I need a type of fish/seacreature to base them off of :)

Oh, a girl ;) Sounds good :) :D

What an unpleasant accident with the glue D: :noes:

And yes, I would like to help if you tell me what would you like me to do.
Should I suggest a fish or sea creature?
I guess it depends on the character too :)
If she likes jewelry she could be a goldfish based...
but if you need something simple, I guess this one would be perfect for a female ;) [link]

Technically I could combine the two fish...
I just need to find the other mermaid ^^;
That could take a while ^^;

I'm thinking I might do a shrimp mermaid/man one day.
Wonder what that would look like :?

Technically he's the only male I have; I just liked the idea of a not pretty one ;)
Actually...no.
I did do Mozenrath as a beta fish merman.
That was weird...

She's actually pretty.
