Why yes, I know it's November, NOT May. These were initially sketched during Mermay, inked during June, and scanned in November. What's the reason for this belated erase and scan-athon? I want to compile my little merbabies into a zine!
Eventually, I want to watercolor each and every one. Some of my Artnerds have requested these as coloring sheets, so once I have these cleaned up in black and white, I'm going to make that available through Gumroad and on my Patreon.
These mermaids are all based on freshwater aquarium animals- mostly fish, but there's a few amphibabes in the mix too!

These were inked traditionally, and if you're looking to relax, I highly suggest watching the timelapse videos for these!
