I never got to show this when it came in but look at my new clamshell for my professional mermaid gigs down the road! It's absolutely ginormous and I can sit in it without any problems! Thank you wish for selling it to me so cheap! I draped a beige fishing net on top of the shell but I feel like it's missing some things decoration wise. I don't know, maybe weave some seaweed through the netting itself? 🐚🌸🐠🌊

I apologize for the delay of mermaid things, I've been meaning to update for a while but it's been rather slow due to work and such. But I have a new set of simpler business cards on the way and the tail is almost finished at this point; I just sadly can't share progress on it until it's fully painted. But on the plus side; things are slowly starting up and I've had a few requests for gigs once my tail does finally arrive then hopefully everything will kind of start falling into place. It's just been playing the waiting game now at this point. But she's coming. All the pieces are ready and then Nymphia will finally make her presence known. Thank you guys so much for being so patient with me. 🌸🐠🐚🌊 But in the meantime I've still got a few Waterworld sketches in the works and then I'll be a bit more crafty getting things ready. .

After a rather stressful but fun day yesterday, I thought I'd unveil the next part of my Waterworld/ Nymphia crossover. It was my first time getting to draw Deacon and not gonna lie, the details on his costume were such a pain in the butt to get right. But I think I did a decent job on his vest, I forgot there were so many little doodads on his attire. But it made it a lot more fun to doodle. 🐚🐠🌊πŸ’₯

I've been Mariner-approved! Thank you so much @wrayguns for being such a good sport with the Nymphia/Waterworld crossover. It's been so much fun drawing these silly sketches and I'm so glad the cast really enjoys them.πŸ’₯🌊🐚🌸

I never realized how large this thing is. It's pretty sturdy too but it's difficult to get on the shell after swimming around for a few minutes. Whelp, that's what practice is for isn't it? :) 🐚🌸🌊🐠

Feeling like death at the moment after coming home late from working last night but here I am again doodling. First thing you should know is that comics aren't really my strength, but I figured it would be a nice change from a full on sketch. This is kind of supposed to be the farewell, the Mariner chose to continue sailing around the world with the hopes of keeping the Smokers at bay elsewhere and Nymphia kind of has to return home to make sure the merpeople are able to relocate to cleaner seas and though she wants him to stay and at least rest on Dryland, he knows he has a duty to attend to. Cheesy resolution, but I live on cheesy things. πŸ’₯🌊🐚🐠🌸

So I know @finfolkproductions doesn't really sell their tops by themselves as they mostly serve as an add on; but I absolutely love the shape of their design! They're so whimsical and definitely reminds me of something out of an art nouveau painting. I would definitely envision mine with a nautilus theme but with a mother of pearl esque shimmer that would totally match my mermaid tail! I've been in love with them for months and I was actually contemplating getting one of the Mythic silicone tops once they decide to make another sale. Maybe one day, I hope they'll be able to sell the tops custom made but who knows for sure. 🐠🌊🌸🐚

Playing around with a slightly "sexier" top design for a scale top to match my nautilus centric scheme. I was very heavily inspired by a color scheme inspired by one of @mermaidkariel 's tops that I've been admiring for a while and I think it would be a lot of fun to implement some sequin scales on a top since I have yet to try making one. Personally I've usually never been a fan of scale tops but I think it would be a fun challenge to play around with. I already found the pendant that'll be the centerpiece for it, but I'm still trying to figure out if I want to do coin sequins for the bottom trim or a crystal beaded trim on the bottom of the top. 🐚🌊🐠🌸

More Nymphia/Waterworld AU coming your way! Sailing away from incoming Smokers. It was a slow day at work so I decided to pass the time by drawing a little something. Seriously I think I may be in a bit too deep. Send help immediately! But it really helps flesh out her character and it's a great exercise in working in alternate universes. πŸ’¦πŸ’₯🐚🐠

Finished up this sketch of Thor and Nymphia to play around with the colors and see if they would clash with each other. Luckily they actually look really nice together and the gray blue really brings out the blue in his eyes. I was so worried the blue would clash too much with her dress but actually the bright/ pastelly colors clash with his earthier tones quite nicely. Now that I have established their costumes, let's get crafty! πŸŒŠπŸŒΈπŸšπŸ βš”οΈπŸ›‘βš‘οΈ

Allrighty. Testing some more mermaid makeup for Nymphia this time around. If anything, I'll try something a little more muted if the colors don't quite stay in place. Let's hope this works. But at least I'll have a before shot if the makeup does end up getting ruined. 🌸🌊🐠🐚

"There was Mermaid Minnie, met her down in Madagascar. She would kiss me, any time that I would ask her. Then one evening her flame of love blew out. Blow me down and pick me up! She swapped me for a trout" .

I just remembered it was also #mermaidmonday today :) I have this really silly picture to share with my good buddy Pirate Mackenzie. So one of the younger members of our merpod was celebrating a birthday so a lot of the other mers from @obmerpod brought their tails and dressed up for the occasion. Also I apologize in advance for the crappy makeup D: I was running super late after work and I was rushing through to make sure it stayed on okay. But I think I'll time my makeup application for next time. Also I'll be remodeling this tail with a new fluke to fit over my massive Mahina fin since the monofin completely snapped after its first swim. 🐠🐚🌸🌊

Peek a boo! Have a little flashback from Nymphia's mini debut from @hanadokicon this past year since everyone's at Anime Expo at the moment. I brought my @mahinamermaid monofin and my leggings from @finfolkproductions and just swam around the pool since I didn't quite have my silicone tail just yet. But I've been training up for it so hopefully it will be just as amazing soon. Happy #mermaidmonday you guys ❀️

Well the final accessory has been acquired! This'll be my headpiece for my Mermaid Nymphia ensemble. Yeah there's a lot of softer pink colors that was supposed to match with my original tail design but honestly I think it'll look gorgeous with the current tail scheme that I have. Also I wanna give a shoutout to my tailmaker @aliciaunderwater who is going through some pretty tough times right now. Wishing her all the best and sending her lots of mersister hugs. 🌸🐠🌊🐚

There's magic in every detail that you see. Sorry for the delay, we've had a lot of stuff going on for this past week. Our biggest news so far: Seafarers will actually be relocating to the Los Angeles Area! We're so excited for this move as we feel like we'll be better able to serve a more bustling clientele and possibly network with other fellow mermaids in our community as well. It'll be an arduous process but I know it'll be exciting. However I'll start off our new progress by showing some new costume details for Nymphia. .
.
.
.Fun fact about her costume. All the seashells you see on her costume are 100% real. From the large polished abalone shells to the tiny nautilus pendant that sits as the centerpiece of her costume. I wanted to create a piece that showed a part of the ocean world that she lived in as well as feature the creature of her namesake. 🐚 Want an Abalone Top of your own? We also take limited commissions on them as well. .

There's always magic in the details of things. I wanted to kind of capture some of the small elements of Nymphia's costume just to show some of the fun little bits I added on. I'm really loving the gold trimmed shells on the top but the seashorse coins on my belt are by far my favorite touch. I happened to find them by accident since they were on sale at Michaels. 🐚🐠🌸🌊

I decided in celebration of my new title, I figured I'd change the centerpiece on my mermaid top. I found this beautiful nautilus pendant while exploring my favorite shop in Seaport Village and seriously I fell in love with it. It actually blends really well with the rest of my top. There's always been something absolutely magical about nautilus shells and I've always appreciated how beautiful they are, while the seahorse may be Nymphia's spirit animal in terms of her story, the nautilus will be her symbol for other mers to remember her by. I figured it'd be a nice touch since I haven't seen another merperson use a nautilus for inspiration. 🐚🐠🌸🌊
