I'm not a rigger, I'm a modeler, but how would you go about rigging a mermaid?
I'm mainly a 2D artist, but I'm a traditional sculptor as well.
I'd like to model a mermaid and I would like to know how to go about rigging it to pose it and animating it a little bit.

There are many free Auto-Rigger script out there. I recommend the abAutoRig. Since it is easy to use and the rig is not too complicate for a beginner to study. The only thing you need to practice is paint weighting.

A mermaid? so you cut the whole lower-body off, replace it with the abAutoRig "create stretchy spline", that should work well.
