Nori Nori

Last but not least is Nori Nori. I like her name, it's from the latin name for the spotted eagle ray. I was working on a lovely watercolor of her, but screwed up on the eye and made the mistake of trying to fix it and so ruining her entire head... so I'm heart broken at the loss of my watercolor, but luckily I had scanned the original. So here she is. Not too overly ray-like, not like Lin anyway. I thought of making her head ray-shaped, but that ray is not so pretty in the head and has a BIG beaky thing, hence the eagle part of its name, so no. Anyway, the idea is to have a fisher-person who is a mermaid who fishes with a hook and line cause it's a silly nostalgic overly complicated human way to do things, but extremely fascinating. Also she fights with a ball and chain, but not a ball, but an anchor, hence the anchor in two of the images... no its not based off that chick from that one video game as my brother pointed out, as you can see I clearly haven't played the game or know anything about it... but no. Right, so she's in graphite and ink. See you all next time I've got new stuff!
