The Black Mermaid by P4perCake The Black Mermaid by P4perCake
EDIT: Recolored~!!

For a story on KFI: klusterfrackink.wordpress.com/…

Title: The Black Mermaid
Character: Seigyoku Seshiru (mermaid form)
Medium: Photoshop CS6
Hours: 3.5 (?)
Description: "For there have been no marine folk such as this--an abomination, a strange monster amongst strange creatures...a mermaid with skin as black as the darkest depths of the sea where no light can reach, a tail made from the claws of a beast that can strike at any unfortunate enemy to swim in it's way, spikes like the teeth of a giant shark, and eyes as yellow as the putrid waste that man has left in the sea. It is the only creature that can traverse unharmed through the polluted waters of the edges of the cities on land, a weapon above all that dwell in the oceans. A mermaid never meant to be."

Decription 2, story excerpt: "When I die, my previous life will belong to you. You will become the opposite of what I was: your legs will turn into a mighty tail, one that will allow you great bursts of speed, your lungs will breath in water instead of air and you will become what I once was. But this form will be from my blood and yours--something entirely new to what your body is used to. As a sign of this, your hair will be as pure white as snow--for this form holds no bearings to the demons you are, it is pure--purely your own. My gift to you. My voice will become yours, and you will sing with the sweetest sound the world has ever known--the voice of a mermaid."

I guess that's a beast that can't be tamed.:(
Hope I'm wrong cause there's no way in heaven or hell I'd get away her so (waving hi).:)
