What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?
(I guess the bigger they grow, the harder it is for them to stick their torso and even their head out of the water. That’s why no one ever sees the big ones. And definitely never the huge ones.)
A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to Julie Dillon’s Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!

Zombie Panty and Stocking
I’m still extremely fond of this old drawing of Zombie Panty that I drew back in 2011. I decided to go back and fix a few mistakes and draw it much larger so that I can sell it as a print. I also added Stocking!
Been a rough week. Not much time to draw.
deep sea mermaids
This painting of sirens started as a sketch for the 30 Monster Girls Challenge.
a mermaid i drew nearly a year ago for alex’s monster girl gang zine! i had so much fun painting this, haha.
here’s a process gif:
oof I never know what to do with fineliner inked drawings
Getting back to Monster Girl Mondays (even though it’s not monday anymore lol)
And since it’s the year of the snake I thought I’d start the year with something snake themed. Ended up making some Futuristic Fashionista Gorgonista. Went random with the colors this time around. Anyway enjoy!
Day 16: Ghost Girl
She makes her rounds in the less populated hours of the night. The patients who have returned from death can see and appreciate all the work she does around the hospital. She can’t move on until her son, who’s been in intensive care for years now, isn’t in need of her anymore.
It’s almost as if they don’t even feel the hospital’s budget cuts. Those still with a (morbid) sense of humor jokingly wish the boy never gets better.
I adore the story behind this one!
30 Day Monster Girl Challenge:
Day 1- Harpy
Had fun with this, spent a lot more time than I intended on it. Done in mostly Sai then Moved to Photoshop for details since I find Sai too ’ blendy’ as I call it. These will come every few days so I can give them all attention. I suck at giving myself time to draw, and i dont know what to do for myself..so hopefully doing this challenge will help me draw for myself again and find my creative spark again. oTL
A Lamia for illustration!
