This scene just popped into my head. Unfortunately I am currently on a tight schedule, so this slightly unpolished (read: in progress) work will be my only contribution to this year's Mer-May. Hope you like it, and to all those mermay-illustrating-enthusiasts out there: I wish you the best of fun! Your contributions look awesome!
Beware, the video is quite long (4min), but it nicely illuminates the creative uncertainties and how I resolved them.
Thanks for checking this out!
