The Mighty Merlion by HeatherHitchman The Mighty Merlion by HeatherHitchman
TITLE: "The Mighty Merlion"
ARTIST: Heather R. Hitchman
ORIGINAL MEDIUM: Mixed (watercolor, ink, gouache)

This painting was a special addition to my #MerMay2017 collection! This painting was a lot of fun and I learned a lot.

? WHAT IS #MerMay2017 ? 
For the month of May 2017 I created one of a kind merfolk drawings all month long! Its called #Marmay, a monthly themed challenge to celebrate and engage with the online fantasy art community. Specifically, I explored and expanded the lore of merfolk and the lost magics of "the world of man" within my own IP, a magical world called "Terratoff"

STORY:
Merlions are both regal and ferocious creatures of the sea, but they also have a lot in common with their cousins above the water. Like the lions on land, they live in family groups called “prides” and are frequently spotted sunning 
themselves on the shores and rocks above.

They hunt large game together, their favorite prey being the hippocamp. Few have ever managed to capture or tame a merlion., which is why many believe they still may yet exist, even though earth has precious little remnants of magic left to sustain such a creature.
