Prompt #2 - The City of Lost Songs

Beneath a treacherous cliff face known as the City of Lost Songs rests a ship graveyard where even the bravest rarely venture. While the currents deep beneath the water are safe to swim, the water near the surface will dash the strongest swimmers and ships against the unforgiving rocks. The graveyard itself is riddled with vicious predators, creatures that wait for their meal to be cracked open by the cliff’s fangs. Few venture down to scavenge treasure from the destroyed ships. Draw or Write your character’s adventures at the City of Lost Songs. Your piece must feature an ocean, your registered character, and either shipwrecks or a dangerous cliffside.


I had to go with this Portal for Podge's first portal challenge, because I knew MerMay was right around the corner, and I wanted to draw her in a mermaid form so so badly :')  And she turned out so amazing. I love everything about this; very proud of myself.

So here's Podge, exploring the shipwrecks of the City of Lost Songs. While new ingredients is always her first priority, she simply could not pass up the opportunity to visit what is essentially a ship graveyard.

Also I was struggling to design between this prompt and the epiales prompt, so I drew one of the epiales in the background for fun.

    Ahhh I absolutely adore this design as well! The ruff at the top of her scales/dress is cool, and the pattern on her lower half is beautiful.

    Great work on the surroundings, too! The sea vents and sunken ships add great flavour.

      Thank you very much! The pattern on her tail is the same pattern on her legs in her normal form too ^^ It's just more bold I guess because there's a lot more showing on it.
