Merunes Illusionist by phoenixlu Merunes Illusionist by phoenixlu
“Merunes are basically mermaid-like creatures. They are physically weaker than most other races, but tend to be more flexible and graceful in their movements than land and air-based creatures.
Because of this, all Merunes employ magic, and few wield weapons.However, unlike mermaids, Merunes are much more than simply a fish torso and tail combined with a human upper body.
They have webbing between their arms and their body, as well as between their fingers.They all have two split tails。”

I love the way you've positioned him in this! He's suductive, but at the same time you get the sense that he's completely dangerous as well. Perfection, simply perfection!

Were you inspired at all by 'The Sea King's Son' short story from the book, "Water: Tales of Elemental Spirits" by Robin McKinley?

As the director of the Zems project and the one who gave phoenixlu this commission, I believe I would be able to answer your question the best.

The Merune concept evolved out of creating a merfolk design that was different from the usual mermaid. The split-tail design allows greater maneuverability underwater at the cost of speed, and the fins on their backs allow them to regulate depth more easily.

As for this particular piece, phoenixlu was allowed to depict the scene anywhere, and she might have been inspired to do an ice scene based on a similar commission from HeroDees: [link]
