Cecaelia: All this by xaotl Cecaelia: All this by xaotl
I don't have a fancy name for my drawings of this type, unlike my 'Drowned ones' series, so I'm using the popular term for the race (Which I keep having to look up since the spelling won't stick in my head!!)
The tattoos aren't based on anything special, so don't go looking for amazing significant cultural accuracy. There isn't any.
I did spend some time looking at random pictures of Coral Reefs and Octopus tentacles however, especially the suckers, so I hope those are looking better.

Nothing more sexy to a woman than a man who loves his children.

Wow! I'm absolutely stunned! The only character that I like better than a merman at the moment is a cecaelia. Thank you so much for drawing a guy fantasy character! Could you do more of him and his kid? or tell us more about them? Could you color this? The expressions on their faces are amazing. You have great talent.

I'm SO adding this to my favorites,

Unfortunately I moved and I still haven't moved my art computer, so I don't have the coloring abilities right now, though I'll try and do some more art if I get the chance. Pencils will take me a while to get scanned, but I can try and do some Oekaki or something. <:3

Beautiful drawing. I love his dreads and tattoos! (And of course the fact that he's an octopus)

Glad you like it though, lovey!

Hooray for baby cecaelii (at least, I think that's how it's supposed to be pluralized...since it's Latin and all).

This is really nice! ^^

Dreadlocks fully submerged all the time...hmmm....wonder how that would actually work out! I wonder if they'd stay, haha.
Beautiful work though, as always! :)

Well, seeing as how he's an octo-man, maybe he has octo-magic to make them stay :P

Actually, squid tentacles would be cool too, thousands of razor sharp bard dealies! Headbanging would be verrrry dangerous! :D
