fishermerms from the shipwrecked dlc are pretty interesting to me because they fish but they don’t eat it afterwards. they’re also friendly, but they run away from you and you can’t befriend them. they aren't as feral acting as regular merms and they arent violent.

webber claims them as half human, which is freaky, but expected since they are merms and merms seem to usually be something else before they were merms. 

they even have a language and names for themselves. it’s really odd. people would probably say they don't eat the fish because its cannibalism, but then why would you fish in the first place if you didn't want to eat it? sammy craved fish as he had said in a quote before. maybe if they eat the fish they have a higher chance of turning feral? or at least turn feral faster, if its inevitable? merms drop fish when killed... god i feel so bad for merms Aghdksgdjsg

I like the technique you did with the snow. With me, I've had trouble with rain and snow effects, so congrats on finding a solution that I've been having a problem with for years.

Interesting palette for his fur.  Were you inspired by the colors for the concept deer versions?

Interesting touch with the eye. Kind of different from the gameplay sprite.

maxwell and his shadow gamers (i notice that his head has a more square shape when he's a playable character then when he's an NPC)

Nice detail of the duelists behind him.

A tragic piece but worth the creation. You should repost all your sammy and pipton pieces in a order that has a semblance of a story(maybe another thread).

Another nice merm piece and your comments raise a point. They're probably afraid due to the fact they're scared of other sentient life?

I based the color of their fur on the color of their gills, Sammy and Pipton have different colored gills noticeably and I thought "hey it would be cool if that's what their fur looked like when they were goats". I mean, if Mumsy can have blue fur then it makes sense.

avoiding is probably their way of coping with what they are now, in context to them being formerly being human. just an idea

Like a touch of Junji Ito in that piece. Not sure if you're familiar with this but have you read the manga Portus but I'm getting a similar feeling from it.

Nice choice of inverted colors. It makes Charlie even more menacing.

I can't tell if Pipton is smiling or if that's his moustache. Subtle touch with the arm and ear mermifying.

he's making an awkward smile, mustache isn't visible because his mouth is too high up whoops.  

thank you!! i love adding details like that.

Don't think Pipton's ever been confirmed to be a goat or not but it's an interesting choice.

true, but i always felt it made sense. they seem to have some bond together since pipton seems to worry about sammy a lot. 

there is a possibility that he could be human as well considering the line mumsy said which was "Another of your kind passed through here once.", i really like this line for other reasons because it means other people have went through this before the player characters and that's just a fun thought. 

but still, the bond feels strong to me. i have a feeling they both were goat residents who hanged out a lot and where either trying to figure out another way to escape and got caught or just failed to please the gnaw in time.

that's personally why i think they were both goats.

My favorite detail is the emphasis of detail on the bones. Also, pretty funny touch with it being inches towards poison.
