Fresh from the drawing table... Nixie!

I have for you another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is a Nixie! 'N' is running thin but I think there are still a couple of gems still to be found. For my second pass through the alphabet I decided to go with something a little atypical for myself and see how it goes. Thankfully, it went much better then I had anticipated! I present to you my version of a Nixie...

The Nixie are suppose to be 'comely' aquatic humanoids that enjoy to lure humans to their watery deaths. As I approached this design I knew there was one thing for sure that would improve this monster... TENTACLES. No, this is not my solution for everything, just most things are in fact better with tentacles. I also made sure to give him hands and feet better suited for swimming. The Nixie definitely gives me hope for some of the monsters ahead of me that may not necessarily be my cup of tea.
