With all the hot summer sunshine, I've just been itchin' to ink up some mermaids. So I flipped through my school of Sweet November mermaids to see who wanted to come out and play. Treasure Tempestwind was quite anxious to come out and have some fun and who was I to tell my lovely flippered friend no?
As I started to color her up I realized this would be a good opportunity to make a quick video on one of the ways that I color up mermaid tails... this one being a more smooth seal or dolphin like inspired look. Hopefully I'll have another video to share in the next day or two. Hope you like them! :)
Anywho, back to the card... I came across this cool BoBunny paper with the pier scene on it and it completely inspired the entire look and story for this card. I love the idea of Treasure breaching out of her ocean home for a glimpse at how the other half live. I wonder if anybody on that pier caught a glimpse of her before she disappeared back beneath the waves? ;)
Well, that's it from me today... hope this week is a good one for ya!
