“I found them inside an old shipwreck, pried them from an old cabinet of sorts. I have but six, but I will find more. There are always more.”
Last year for #MerMay I drew a serious of post-apocalyptic mermaids, which I immensely enjoyed. I really wanted to turn it into a painted series, so I am thrilled to finally be able to share this mermaid with you all. I’m been trying to switch up my process and push myself further, as so I had to knock the painting back several times and redo a lot of the mistakes I had done in the drawing phase, despite the setbacks I think it paid off in the end and I learned quite a bit from the process.
Some of the main changes were a less stiff pose, longer tail, smaller head, better hands and of course more knick-knacks!
I’m going to debut the Limited Edition Prints of this piece at GenCon next month. The remaining stock will be available through my online shop after the convention, a smaller open edition will also be made available to patrons.
