The Eel Mermaid by minties The Eel Mermaid by minties
This is the sequel of Sea Centauress, commissioned by *Merman1234

"The evil eel mermaid was once the queen of the human lands that attempted to invade the elves homeland across the seas, but were defeated by the magic trident that the sea-centauress used on their ships...sinking the ships and drowning the crews.

The humans rose up and dethroned the human queen. The former queen swore revenge on the sea-centauress. The royal wizard remained loyal to her, the queen asked to be transformed into a terrible sea maiden to personally do battle with the sea-centauress! The wizard also gives her a weapon of immense power to destroy the sea-centauress. The transformation is permanent but the former queen does not care!"

Almost no one acknowledges the nobler qualities of the eel. They're more mysterious than most people imagine. We need more eel mermaids! Get on it Hollywood!!!

Why don't you do one about a girl who wishes to be a mermaid, and finds the next day that her whole community had been transformed along with her and she is the only one who remembers?

This is an amazing piece! The subject is delightfully and fittingly creepy, and I love the shading. I also love how her hair flows, and how subtly intense her eyes are. I simply adore the setting, as well as the staff. Beautiful!
