Yesterday I began my first sketch of the Mermacrabicorn for the Radical Nautical show at Gallery Lombardi. After doodling a little bit, I opted for larger, bulkier claws and a more masculine mid section to offset the long proportions in the head. The front claw is going to be more bloated and have weathering marks to make him look a little more battle tested. I'm not completely happy the positioning of the arms and Ryan Parker, illustrator extroardinaire, thought I should open up his stance to see that more of his chest. The tail design was influenced by japanese mermaid drawings I discovered online. Overall I'm happy with the way it's progressing. What do you think? Opinions and suggestions are much appreciated.
