Water Nixie Character Designs


Here are some character designs that I did for a fairytale called Water Nixie, I wanted to use one of the lesser known fairytales. Its about a sister and brother who fall down a well and a Nixie catches them and to escape the girl threw a brush which became a mountain with thousands of spikes the boy threw a comb behind them which became a mountain with thousands of teeth by the time the Nixie gets through the mountains the children get away. The Nixie is a water spirit from Viking mythology so I tried to make them look Norwegian. I thought I would post the scribbles for the characters, I hope you like them.

I say the same all the time, but is true.
I love these characters, hehehe.

But I don´t know the fair tale.

Are they for an animated cartoon on TV?

Ains...cuando sea adulto quiero trabajar en lo que trabajas tú...hehehe

Thanks very much Sir Franagan for the comments, I never heard of the fairytale either that’s why I chose it to try something different, no their not for a cartoon I did my own take on them for practice.
