Side fins? I wonder if I should add them? I could maybe go ahead and make Honquèrelle a trout, complete with rounded tail fins, overlapping tiled scales (big), and maybe a rounded back dorsal fin. I should also make Umiko a kind of koi-fish, with a kind of double, frilly tail, and asymmetric splotches, like you see some other Japanese mermaids. I should probably do some color studies of these, no?
