Quickly finished off a previous animation sketch
...none of my usual pretty tail colouring...just something simple to make him easier to animate...

Oh yeah! This little guy is nameless right now and I like to give all my fishy pet's a name. Any suggestions?

On the contrary, I think his tail's coloured quite beautifully! A very striking teal blue.
I love his swim cycle. It's smooth, elegant, and really rather attractive. :D All I would point out, however, is that his face is quite 'stony'. While everything else moves, his eyes don't even blink, for example.
All in all, a very decent animation. :)

Any name that begins with Mark or Marc like Markus and Marcelo from many European countries seem to be an iteration of 'of the sea' in Latin.

The tail movement is lovely! I think a little head and torso movement will perfect this :3

Names? Ah, I always had the name Seareach in mind for a merman.

I actually want to add in hair movement but it would take a bit of time to do...

The tail movement is very nice and fluid, but I think it would help you to add some flow to the torso as well.
hehe this is really generic, but Aquamarine?

This is pretty good animation, great job.

Also names huh.......I'm not much of a naming person but i think you should name him Aquarius.

Thank you ^^

I actually had to fix a few issues with the movement so I'm a little surprised that it didn't take that long to do.

On names, I think that Aquarius is a good name and would suit him because he comes from the sea but I fear it may be cliche.
