Mermay Merbaes

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!
