Illustration Friday: Myth

Another nixie! I didn't really mean to go back to drawing fish-ladies but I've been reading Philippa Gregory's Cousins' War books featuring the family of Jacquetta of Luxembourg -  rumoured to be descended from the water fairy Melusina. Hence this week's Illustration Friday topic, myth, making me think of her.

Melusina tends to be depicted with two tails, rather than the single traditional mermaidy one, so I decided they could well be a bit foot-shaped at the end...  She was probably also the inspiration for the original Starbuck's logo.
