A punk mermaid speed-draw warm up, which I didn’t finish because I exceeded my allotted warmup doodle time. I saw a bunch of people on twitter retweeting punk mermaids and I was like… yes that’s a thing I give all the shits about, yes, please.
I figure she’s a manatee-esque mermaid, and therefor wearing corpses of dead sea critters like ispods and sea turtles is probably super taboo to manatee-like mermaids. And while fishing lures look silly to us, they’re symbols of DEATH to sea critters, and what’s more punk rock than that.
Maybe I’ll come back and shade this proper, but it was fun. This is the first color drawing I’ve attempted in Manga Studio 5 so far.
AU - Tom Hiddleston is a grown up Stormageddon

Going through old posts and I thought I’d reblog this, because before regen I NEED THIS LIKE AIR.

Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:
[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.
So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.
SOMEONE DRAW HER PLEASE
CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW AN ANCIENT CRAFTSMAN WAS PRESENTED WITH PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HELP TO NORMALIZE THEIR DISABILITY. AND THEN SAID ‘NAH FUCK THIS WE’RE GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK BADASS.’
This kicks all kinds of ass.
