Reef mermaids by kinkei Reef mermaids by kinkei
I find when Im stuck for things to draw I always end up sketching mermaids!
I tried more daring colours, I really like how it came out!
This is a mix of flash and photoshop.
This is similar to my older piece Mermaid tea party and and Koi Mermaids>>

Hope you all like. :heart:

I traced their torsos to use for a picture I was drawing for fun, since that's how I learn, and I really liked the outcome. Would you mind if I uploaded it? I'd credit you and this picture of course, and there's no way I plan on making a cent on it. I understand if you say no, it's just rare that my drawings ever come out this good.

I love your mermaid series almost as much as the Disney spoofs I've seen. Really fascinated by how you make it work without outlining it. Do you use a tablet and a layer that is deleted in the end?

It must be like how I always end up sketching fairies... People always make fun of me for it but your hand likes to draw what it likes to draw.

Very beautiful piece. The colors really make me happy. <3

:ohmygod: I forgot-

I also like the 'dress-cut' they have- where their scales extend upwards to cover their chest like a backless gown. :yes:
