Have you ever done something backwards that only serve to trouble you at the very end? I dunno this started off as more of a simple scribbly with shading practices... before I became attached enough to keep working into it until it's what it is now. Since there was originally not much intentions towards finishing it until midway into the process I just ran into trouble after trouble of ideas and work that didn't really match with one another.
Anyway...lesson learned...sort of.
Maera Caenis Aria (Not Nereus anymore. In story reboot their surnames changed) is a halfling mermaid and the current generation pirate king of Arvinia (The Rogue Tide Maiandros) as well as an illegitimate princess to the Water Country of Renlovi- though it was a secret her mother kept rather tightly.
Much of her childhood was spent in Vorsha, the country of dragon descents due to her mermaid mother's relatively short-lived paranoia towards the sea, and came to be long term friends with the now King of Vorsha, a dragon hybrid by the name of Kessalendros to whom she builds strong yet unresolved feelings towards due to a series of very complicated personal/commitment issues that keep her from romantically chasing him.
Her adolescent years were spent coming and going on adventures- even at some point with the pirate Zendro. Now she's just busy running from her half brother, building her legendary ship, searching for the Wind God, all the while gathering information on a mysterious person by the name of Ebon whose appearance always seems to brew trouble- the kind of trouble she doesn't want befalling on her dragon king.
Kessalendros isn't mine, but I take full responsibility for his abs. Yes I do.
