Leafy Lineart by Saimain Leafy Lineart by Saimain
I've always thought Leafy Sea-Dragons were strangely adorable. They're so delicate and, well...leafy, like a living piece of seaweed, hee. I thought they would make a beautiful mermaid design. ^__^

Colored version and prints here:


0.5 Mechanical pencil

Wow! Love leafy sea-dragons, but never seen a mermaid based on them!

I love how original it is. I don't think I've ever seen a mermaid designed off of a leafy sea dragon. I don't really think I've ever seen one based off of a sea horse, either... lol. Anyway, I love it.

Beautiful variation on the mermaid. I like the art nouveau style framing you've started to set up, any plans to go more elaborate with it, or just leave it as a simple framing device?

It looks sort of like a really cool Zora from Legend of Zelda. I like it.
