Featured Gift Art

I have to design a mural for my school's writing center - any ideas? 

3 deviants said It has to say "Sometimes a student's best teacher is another student."
2 deviants said It can't be too complicated since it's gonna be a group effort to paint by members of the art club.
2 deviants said We need to get started this month and I hate being in charge of the design. D:
Let's design some merpeople!

At the Reef by Blairaptor


:bulletblue: The design must be based off one species of real fish, modern or extinct! (no ichthyosaurs, marine invertebrates, marine mammals, etc.) When you enter, be sure to say what species you were inspired by. :)
:bulletblue: You can enter as many times as you want, but you can only win one place. Enter by linking me the design. Entries can be seen by the link below.
:bulletblue: You don't have to watch me to participate (though I appreciate watches, hehe). That means you can share this contest with your friends!
:bulletblue: Let's try to avoid nudity. I don't mind artistic nudity, but I try to keep my gallery and things associated with it clean of anything that could be objectionable (except monsters, obviously).
:bulletblue: Be creative! Most creative/clever/original merperson design wins!
:bulletblue: As a tip, remember that merpeople could come in any shape or size, be old or young, be any ethnicity, and be really fishlike or quite human. It's up to you!

Yeah, I started to read your comment like "oh no - I thought it was still there!" haha but yeah, for the time-being I moved it. I have that merperson contest journal up now and it pushed everything down the page so to even it out a bit I moved the webcam. But it'll be back above the comments later. ^^

That's okay - people come and go but I know they'll see my comments eventually. ^^

Also on one of the last days of first semester my English teacher read us a poem about bread and then gave us a bunch of delicious and beautiful warm bread she made and I thought of you. XD
