Here is the inked & colored version or Angie the Anglerfish!
Here is Angie’s story: Angie is the miniature mermaid offspring of her mother Angelica the Anglerfish. Angie is 5 inches tall from the bottom of her tail to the top of her head. For her whole life, all she has known is the dark depths of the ocean and peaceful days with Angelica. But that all ends when Angelica is caught in a fishing net and pulled into the blue and sunshiny surface of the ocean, bringing Angie along with her. Strong currents and Angie’s tired hands eventually force Angie to let go, leaving her alone in the blue and sunny surface of the water, a place that she has never been and knows nothing about. This seemingly horrible tragedy is the thing that leads her to meet Kaycee, Jillian, Delilah, and Suzan, (whom I will be drawing later) and the 5 of them embark on a life changing journey which brings them together as the closest of friends.
SURREAL deep-sea #Anglerfish are strange and elusive creatures that are very rarely observed in their natural habitat. Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles. This little angler, about 9 cm long, is named #BlackSeadevil and it lives in the deep dark waters of the Monterey Canyon. 🎥 Credit: @mbari_news
