Mermay: Blue

I usually come into Mermay with a feeling of dismay... as I want to participate, but I can't seem to come up with good Mermaids to share with the world.

This year a conversation with some peers sparked an idea I honestly wonder why I hadn't thought of before. I have this comic which is full of half fish mutants anyway, why have I NEVER given them the mermaid treatment?

So here is my first effort, pushing Blue all the way to the mermaid.

Now Blue is of course based on the blue shark, a frequent visitor on our fishing trips off the coast of San Diego where I grew up. They don't get big (A bit one is like eight or ten feet). So how could I not have a shark mutant story and not use a shark I'm familiar with.
