Forest Mermaid

2019, pen, ink, digital (Autodesk Sketchbook Pro)

What would a mermaid look like if she lived in lakes and streams deep in the forest? In my imagination, significantly more tanned than her deep sea cousins, and perhaps incorporating some of the traits of fellow forest creatures. My variation included a set of antlers, and her river side friends of small mammals.
