They are fantasy creatures, you can make them whatever you want them to be.

Good point. The design is so cute, love the subdued colors. The noseless face makes for cleaner design anyway.

Do mermaids lay eggs? Would they need mammalries too?

This is awesome! I really enjoy your work.

Any plans to release a collection of your color pieces?

So that they don't smell like fish?

(ho ho, I'm so funny).

anyways, this is one seriously sexcellent mermaid you have drawn, she is a beauty, I wonder what she is thinking so hard about?

Maybe they need noses so they can breath when laying on the rocks seducing sailors? I don't think it matters one way or another, your mermaid is still a great design.
