Seahorse Steed!

It would appear that our favourite valkyrie-mermaid is quite the equestrian, seeing as there’s another steed at her disposal. Not only does she manage to roam on land with the help of her long-legged froggy friend, but she can also eventually take to the skies by riding on an armoured, winged seahorse.

Athena has proven that just because one is a mermaid doesn’t mean she’s stuck in the sea her entire life. Having conquered sea, land, and sky, what could possibly be left?

Oh, right. Space, the final frontier. Clearly our next post will include a manta ray in a spacesuit.

Some animation frames for the seahorse character.

Hope everyone’s having a great 2016 so far!

Plants of Death

Botany must be a risky science in the world of Casuma (the world in which Seafoam Empress is set — yes, it has a name now and everything).

I imagine a plant that spits out fireballs would be slightly hotter than a jalapeño. Mmm, tasty.

Here we’re featuring a couple plant enemies: one is a bulb that tracks your movement and shoots fireballs, and the other is a lily pad that snaps at you if you remain on it for too long.

And not even something as ostensibly innocent as a lily pad can be trusted!

Oh snap.

Happy Halloween!

And an enemy reveal! This monstrous creature releases an army of tentacled minions that spit toxic bile at our poor beleaguered heroine. (Can’t Athena get a break? Nope.)

The team here at SkyTy wishes you a Happy Halloween! May your weekend be filled with sheer horror.

It’s the stuff that nightmares are made of. If you were a mermaid, I guess.
