Nenek Kebayan by Celestial4ever Nenek Kebayan by Celestial4ever
My buddy :icongeneralraccoon: wanted to know how the witch would look like. I may not be using the idea of her turning the guppy temporarily into human (because I do not want people to think that I ripped the story completely off The Little Mermaid - I assure you I will not), but I will use this design somehow. Her outfit is based on traditional Javanese.

Painted in Paint Tool Sai.

I like the pic a lot. She looks like a nice old lady, always smiling... or is she a wolf in sheep's clothing since she is supposed to be a witch?

"Javanese?" Are these the native inhabitants of coffee (java) land? If so, can I book a flight there? :)

Hee hee :XD: that sounds like a great idea for a trip. Actually, the universe of this project is set somewhat parallel to Southeast Asia, so there will be a mixture of a lot of things.

Well, I think the Guppy can turn human without the story being like the Little Mermaid!! D: Just make sure there's no singing, lol! You're probably using Javanese folktales of Merfolk for inspiration / work off of, right? That's what I do, lol.

I love this design too, of course. :] Use it if you can, haha.

Mmm I decided no animal-turning-human bit :b I wanted to keep it semi-logical as possible. As for singing... I might if only I can write proper dialogues, as I do not want to be responsible for brain damages :D
