A little late for mermay but nevertheless here is something I've been working on in my spare time for the past weeks.
For this unusual take on the creature instead of making something scientificly plausible I wanted to highlight the artificialness of the myth through the materials. Rather than creating the usual half-fish half-human motif I made her a person in costume. Like something seen in an unnerving theater play.
I will probably return to this piece in a few months to add more content when I find the time.
