Mermayds

Brief: Just like there's an inktober there's apparently a mermay, which has become a thing without my previously noticing. So in honor of mermay and my ignorance, we'll do some mermayds of our own. Only we do not need to do one each day of the month. One is enough (more is allowed). Any kind of merfolk :)

Oh no! Not another underwater pic! Didn't I struggle enough last time?
Maybe I'll just do a dead mermaid on a rock.

Still no sightings of any mermaids?
Well, they are elusive creatures after all. Maybe one will turn up later.

I know there must be some around because I found this while browsing in a shop for some art supplies yesterday...



I didn't buy.

:blink:

I started one in Sketchbook but since I've no idea what I'm doing (with that underwater scene) and I am making some aywas pet thingies again, I uh... know what I'm doing...?

Come on, everyone. There must be a mermaid around here somewhere.
Just follow the trail of mermaid poop. :)

Well, until one turns up I guess I'll throw some colours around.
Quite a lot of mermaid pics go for that over+underwater view (I remember Melanie Delon doing one for an IFX cover) so I thought I'd have a go. And if it goes wrong I'll paint over the top bit and make it completely underwater. ;)





Woah, woah woah!
Wait a minute.

Has someone put some hands in there?!

Hmm, think I'll have to cover them up with a fish or something.

Yay! we have a maid!

This is what I tried in sketchbook but I think if I want to finish something I need to use artrage... And I did a tiny sketch on a post it at work today. Much simpler than the "steampunk" mermaid I was originally planning. Might work on that. Or... not...


I think I need to get those aywas critters done first, though, or they might never get finished (like everything else I start).

Its good to (finally) see some entries this month.
Here's mine - started in sketchbook.
Not sure if the guy hanging off the dock is going to be the villain or the hero of the piece atm - we'll see.
