Melusine is a spirit of fresh water, often depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish from waist down in the European folklore. She is also illustrated with wings, two tails or both. A tale says that Melusine is a daughter of a fairy named Presseyne and Elynas, the King of Albany. There is a condition between this union of a fairy and a mortal, that he must never enter her chamber when she birthed or bathed her children. One day the king broke his promise causing Presseyne and her children left him. The same pattern appears in other stories where Melusine marries a nobleman only after he promised to give her privacy in her bath and each time she leaves him after he breaks that oath.
Side note: Melusine got the most complex composition among the series. I kept changing the composition and her facial expressions to illustrate a first person view of Melusine's husband which he discovers her true form. This is the final installment of the Mermay series. I gotta say, these old tales are much more fascinating than the Little Mermaid.

My 100 day project has basically switched over from digital drawings to watercolor. This is a spread in my sketchbook from the transition. Took a few days but, I am starting to feel like myself when using the medium again. Just needed to reactivate some muscle memory.
