Bearmaid by drachenmagier Bearmaid by drachenmagier
Because I was told not to. d:

Quote: "...but i'm trying to say it's not convincing. why not give a dragon hands? for the same reason a bear has no fins and gills, or a duck has no big furry paws. (...) i figure a dragon with hands like that just doesnt make sense."






Duck with big furry paws is next. d:

Um, sir? Someone stole your artwork-specifically, this book: www.drivethrurpg.com/product/1…

Oh, nono, that's ok. :D They asked and I got a copy of the book here. :D I find it quite amusing that my bearmaid actually made it into a book. :D

Well, looks like one of the artists got informed, at least. I don't think that even half of the artists were even asked for permission to use their art.

I was contacted via mail, yes. To be honest, I wouldn't want to work for them, but they only asked for already existing drawings and not for exclusive copyrights. So, it was ok for me, since there was zero extra work for me involved.

Pity though that I was apparently an exception. :( That's a tad sad...

Yeah, quite a few artists on this site got screwed over by that company.

niccccccee!!! This creature wouldn't be related to the merbear, would it? although it lacks the characteristic gills, i still see somewhat of a resemblance XD

Hm, nah, I don't think so. This one is clearly still airbreathing (lack of gills) and it's rare for any kind of species to cross such a big border. :D

Why is this not in every fantasy RPG ever? I'm fairly sure any MMO player would love this in the game of their choice, I certainly would. This is by far one of the most awesome piece of artwork I have ever seen ever, so hats off to you.

Not sure if they would be good mounts, though. Mostly because, well they swim under water. d: And I wouldn't want them to be prey. Q_Q

Shouldn't it be a merbear?

Tsk, merbears have gills and tiny fishscales. Big difference to the bearmaid that is still lungbreathing with harder and bigger scales. *serious nod*

j/k, I guess that's a matter of the own taste. :D In my case it started as an inside joke.

Fish people would be pretty nasty. They would also smell pretty bad.

The worst you could do would be herring. They fart to communicate.

Well, I got new fish and decided to find out whether or not they fart.

But then I found an article about herring farting instead. :iconreactionplz:
