Undersea Encounter by Jon-Lock Undersea Encounter by Jon-Lock
Here's my take on the Little Mermaid....I mean, boy. A few suggested it and at first I wasn't sure if I was going to do it because I couldn't really think of anything. But, I thought it would be cute if they were kids...like Miyazaki's take. I also simplified their looks. So, I just went ahead and came up with this scene where a girl and her friends were playing beach ball in the shoreline when one of them hit it so far that it went beyond their reach. It was only then one girl decided to go for it and dive in...she then meets a peculiar boy...hope you guys like it.

Let's just say he's strong enough to hold that ball underwater...like super strong. OTL

Here's a follow up of this scene ^^ jon-lock.deviantart.com/art/Up…

And I thank you for the 25k+ watchers! You guys are the best!

At first my only thought on this picture was "awwwwwww" and then I realized he is holding that full-inflated beach ball like two feet underwater. That merboy is stronger than the hulk.

Either that beach ball is filled with water, or he's a really strong mer-boy. Otherwise, he'd be pulled to the surface by its sheer buoyancy. 

Sorry. I'm an engineer, and that was my first thought. :P My second thought is more along the lines of: AAAAAAAH! It's adorable!

Not Mermaid, but Merman or Merboy since he's young.
