I’m very excited to see the new live action Little Mermaid film from Disney and can’t wait to see Halle Bailey as Ariel. I’m curious to see how the film depicts the merpeople. I’ve seen loads of amazing art celebrating the casting and I wanted to join in.
I recently got myself and iPad and downloaded procreate on it. I’ve wanted to start working digitally for a while now and decided to take the plunge and created these two mermaids.
The first was created entirely on procreate will the second was a pencil drawing I had done in my sketchbook which I then coloured on procreate. I’m really enjoying this way of working so far and am looking forward to exploring more ways of working on the app.
I’ve been a bit busy at work and have fallen behind on mermay this year. I don’t know if I’ll draw something for everyday, but I may as well try as the month is nearly over.
I’ve combined three days into one for this post as they were all created using ink, bleach and pencil. I wanted to create a glowing effect for these mermaids, something I’ve also done in previous mermay challenges.
