Ha..ha. Yes, I also found that gloop pen has so many fun and can create many fun effects. Just like your magical undersea world these babies. How will these babies turn out to be? ;):)

Now there's something ya don't see every day! Love the idea of the eggs being all fish like and non mammalian. Is the father of these wee ones ol' Catfish? Or do they take after their mom?

Makes one think. I wonder if they will be told stories of little faerie princesses on land kissing frogs and such when they're old enough.

Charming as you lead us further and further into the realm of storybooks and picture books as well.

Pai, I am so happy that you liked it! You are one of my favorite artists here. Your work is professional and uniquely beautiful, and you inspire me to practice more in hopes that I can better myself. Yep, this gloop tool is the coolest! As far as the babies....that is a story in the making at this moment!:D

D-Akey, Thank you, I just thought that since the mermaids were half fish, that there should be eggs, just as we start out really. This will be a challenge for us-my husband and I, as my ideas are really not totally childlike. My ideas kind of lean towards mythological or old world fairy tales that are not deemed appropriate and are considered harsh these days.
Some of the books that I have checked out lately in the children's area for reference are such a shock though, as the material seems dull, and the graphics boring, so unlike Boxy and Misterpaint-as I am so happy to read of their success. :)

Thanks Foxy. I plan on going back and adding detail when I have more time in the summer. I am so happy that you liked it. AR3 rocks, doesn't it?:)
