Oto Hime by SAkURA-JOkER Oto Hime by SAkURA-JOkER
Oarfish mermaid. I had the inspiration from a Japanese folktale Urashima Taro, since the Japanese name for this fish is "Ryugu-no-tsukai" (Ryugu=underwater castle from the tale, tsukai=messenger). But instead of the messenger, I had the story's heroine Oto Hime (princess Oto) in mind for the design.

Oh! So that's how these japanese mermaids are called!
So THAT's what One Piece's Queen Otohime was referencing! ^_^
