An exemplary member of a Piscine Magistrate's sub-harem; a collection of fertile females used for the sowing of seed as opposed to serving a directly pleasurable role in the prima harem. A swarm of eels harass the brood mermaid in her later stages, eager to snatch up freshly hatched young. These swarms are encouraged by most Magistrates as they consider it an excellent measure for thinning the weak offspring; immediately setting the stage for a strong and culled lineage. Brood mermaids are often given as donativum profundi, "imperial largess of the abyss", to honoured guests, as the reciprocated offering of offspring is considered an assumed display of trust in important dealings amongst piscines of high standing.

Daily Deviation

Brood Mermaid by ~Keithwormwood is a great example of a piece that registers the evolution on an artists' abilities. The elegance and beauty of creatures, backgrounds and accompanying stories are deep and strong... a treat for those who know this deviant and a great introduction for new appreciators.

I saw this piece in another publication recently, and I feel I'd be remiss if I didn't ask: did you give permission for your art to be re-purposed for Monte Cook's "Numenera" and its supplements?

fascinating like a 21st century daring pic, perfect like a 19th century illustration. *thumbs up*

How is considered for a mature audience it is beautiful. I almost went to bed before finding these I am glad I didn't. Some of the best work i have seen so far here.

I was just about done for the site today but then I found another piece that he/she made. And I am too glad that I didn't.
