Hi.  Smiley

I drew a mermaid the other night, She's holding a seahorse in her palms and mimiking it with her tail. The horse didn't come out too awful bad, but the mermaid could probably be better. My fishies look goofy.  Lips sealed

I haven't been by in a while and have practiced even less. Time to doodle again.

Here's the mermaid:


and the cute little seahorse:


Let's all add some mermaids and sea critters!

The fishies don't look goofy - they look fantastic!  Great job!

I love the expression on the little seahorse's face! Too cute! What did you use to color this?

Thank you, everyone! The medium is really just a quick sketch scanned in and colored on my computer with the brush tool of my Adobe painting program. I use various brush sizes and dilutions, maybe, I guess the closest style of painting would be water based color paint.

As for her chest, I pretended they were small (like me) and were hidden by the position of her arms. I didn't know if it was acceptable to draw nuddies here.  Huh
