I forgot to post yesterday's #MerMay mermaid and I'm adding in today's- the LAST mermaid for MAY. It has been fun. Yesterday, I took requests on which celebrity I should make into a mermaid and Arianna Grande won. #MerMay turned out to be great fun and extremely popular (tens of thousands of submissions) so I think i may have stumbled into an annual event! If you like this Arianna Grandemaid, look for it in my Store, for purchase- along with a couple other mermaid pieces of original artwork.
Here's the last two days of #MerMay drawings. I still haven't done the full range of mermaid drawings and styles I want to do. The Embrace one is at least a little different for me. I haven't had a ton of time to experiment like I'd like to, so many of these have fallen into my "usual style", which is a bit disappointing for me. Still, doing a new one (in color, thanks to Jeremiah Skipper) every day (except weekends) is hard enough, right? Both of these originals are for sale in my Store!
This was inspired by a photo I saw- which was actually of a little girl with long hair- but I liked the attitude and stance. Mermaidized! The original is in my Store for purchase, if interested! ALSO- Its the last 8 days of my Art of Tom Bancroft Kickstarter! Check it out please.
This one was a lot of fun, I wanted to try a rougher inking style and a moodier feel. Out of my usual box, but I'm happy how it came out. Brilliant subtle colors by Jeremiah Skipper. The original black and white art is for purchase in my Store.
