Rare to see a male water sprite. I love the concept and I could see it being almost like a frog prince-ish concept. Very creative and adorable. 10/10 would befriend.

Such luscious hair floating in the pond. He looks quite healthy if disgruntled.

It's because nobody wants to make friends with him, he has the water inside his belly and he wants to fly instead living in the swamp)

Nice! In Czech folklore these guys drown people and keep their souls in little lidded cups. What is the Russian folklore about them?

:iconmiriel-ru:
Miriel-ru Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014
It says that it's a guy who rules mermaids and drowned men, he is also the master of water. He grown the fish and like sometimes to keep people in order to have a good time together, it's a cool guy generally. :) My inspiration is here www.youtube.com/watch?v=76ZJAi…  It's a song from a cartoon))
