Helpful Merman by TV-SHOW Helpful Merman by TV-SHOW
No-dialogue comic for my portfolio ^^ I added a few frames after receiving feedback on tumblr.

edit: there is a large discussion in the comments if it's a prince or a princess and i can confirm that it is a prince

This is a cute piece. Is mixed with emotions for me. The prince needed help, the merman saw and did release him, but it showed that the merman was bound as well, but unseen. I don't know but my thoughts, it's just like someone how even though they need help, they help others first, ya know? But that's to my thoughts on this piece.
I really like the style and the colour if this piece, it adds to my thoughts emotionally as it gives it a dim light. The merman kept in the dark and unseen...
This is an amazing piece, got to be one of my favourites I have seen that had a story. Well done! :D :heart:

This would make a great short film. I love how your comic doesn't need dialogue or clarification of the story because your story telling technique here is so wonderful . Great work dude :)

Actually the tiara says differently. The "tiara" is meant for princesses, but the "crown" is for princes and I don't see a crown, but a tiara.but if it is suppose to be a prince then I hope that tiara is switched with a crown soon.

P.S. I may have spelled tiara wrong so the definition is a crown meant for princesses, but alot smaller than the princes

Sorry for the double comment, but is there a story behind the merman being chained to the treasure chest? Will we see more comics about this lovely little guy? Please? :D

would you mind telling us what this longer story was? I'm just so curious about this dear little merman! Panels 17 and 18 especially touched my heart! haha.

It also tells the story of why he is chained to the chest! And the interaction between him and the prince is longer. I don't want to spoil too much in case I do finish it ^^
