The Anatomy of a mermaid

yes, thanks.
i hate when people draws mermaid’s tail like it was some sort of goddamn suit on normal human legs like this:

it just doesnt work

christmas has come early

Thank you.

christ thanks so much

Yeah I HATE when people draw mythical creatures that don’t exist wrong

Not only that, early depictions of mermaids have them depicted in similar ways, such as the lower legs fusing together into a tail or the mermaid merely two tails instead of legs, like the starbucks mermaid or having human legs and a tail

or in this case, the mermaid literally has a fish tail suit over human legs, similar to the seal skins used by silkies

"If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones."

I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said

You hear all these “you’re not a real fan unless” and it lists a hundred things, but I met a dude today who saw my Deadpool pin and asked what my favorite story arc was, and I explained that while I loved Deadpool, I was new to Marvel (I only really got into it a year and a half ago) and hadn’t been able to find a lot of the comics. Instead of making a face or a derogatory comment, he just offered to send me all the stuff he had. That is a true fan.

"I think that a huge problem is people who read comics and don’t understand the point of superheroes, which is to be the best version of yourself. You love Captain America? Well, you know what Captain America would never do? Go online anonymously and shit on a girl for having an opinion."Brian Michael Bendis, dropping truth bombs in an interview with Vulture (via homovikings)
