Very interesting. Animations that go on indefinitely like this are always amusing XD

I'm not going to nitpick or anything but you might want to add an eye blink in future animations. Her eyes are going to get really dry with all that air rushing against them :o

I have to say after playing this game a day or so ago I wondered how long it would be until the DiD community latched onto the mermaid factory level ;).  Great to see an artist of your calibre doing so though, great animation job

I'll admit the fake mermaid creation thing was rather up the DiD alley, wasn't it? ^_^
