Can someone draw us an amabie/amabiko?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have no artistic talent of my own, but I know there's a few others here without such a handicap.  Now is your time.  :) 

What is an amabie, you ask?  Well, wikipedia says, "... the amabiko is a multi-legged prophesizing creature which prescribes the display of its artistic likeness to defend against sickness or death."

Yokai.com - obviously(?) the leading authority on yokai - has this somewhat more useful description,

Quote

APPEARANCE: Amabie is a mermaid-like yōkai with a mixture of human and fish features. It has long hair and a scaly body. It has a beak-like mouth, and three legs. It glows with a bright light that can be seen from the shore.

If anyone has some drawing skills and would like to take a crack at illustrating the above description(s) - for fun and (possibly) the aid of humanity - then post your artwork below.   I think a bunch of people might benefit from seeing it before this whole thing is over.

I saw this online and wanted to share. It's so pretty!! It was under a search for Amabie...although it is missing a lot of human parts, I felt like it was a nice concept to run off of.

      I joined this forum a couple weeks ago and I've been trying to submit information to those with questions regarding an anime they saw in the past (Recommendations Section). If you saw something in the early 2000's or 90's...post your question if you're looking for the name of or information regarding an older anime in the Recommendations section. I'll try to answer this week or next week if I recognize the title. Even if I don't recognize your description entirely; I can still try to point you in the right direction. If you posted 'looking for...' context in Recommendations; check to see if I haven't already written an answer. I joined Anime Forums to help people find or rediscover classic anime. I know over 300 classic titles by memory and have knowledge of some rarities which never made it out of Japan. If it's regarding manga, though...I'm not quite as helpful (I never read manga quite like I watch anime).

      Hi, I've been looking for this anime so much time that I don't really remember how long. So anime definitely aired before 2000. 
      It had so much erotic content, but the main plot was so great that erotic content I don't really recall. I saw only one episode at my friends. Ever since I did not see anything like that.
      What I remember is that, main plot was about some cult who was sacrificing ladies, piercing trough their bodies and so on. It was so epic, I've never seen anything like that.
      So main heroine, wasn't really connected with that cult, and she fall in love with some guy, and for some reason she had been attacked. But she had some magical power which protected her, and she gave her earring to her boyfriend  (earring contained that power). So she fall in love and gave away her power. After a while, her boyfriend started using that power and saved her. But got into cult's hands and became a monster.
       
      Anime had a lot of sexual content, Ecchi but not Hentai. A lot of violence, really good plot , and all that Japanese stuff, which we like.
      If you've seen that, please let me know the name of anime.
      Thank you!
