Rescue Siren Maris

Maris rounds out the five lead characters in "Rescue Sirens." She happens to be the other of my favorites, although I must say, I do love them all. Maris has the tail of a common dolphin, and hers is the most difficult for me to draw accurately, and also to balance its weight. For me, dolphin tails are a constant challenge, as they have a very particular structure and shape that, if not adhered to, lose their integrity. As for Maris's character, she's the most fashionable and culturally savvy of the Sirens. She has a little of Thurston Howell's DNA in her character, which makes me SO happy. 

I also should mention that all five of these Rescue Sirens were drawn and inked traditionally, but they were colored on my iPad with Procreate. I have a little routine nowadays where at the end of the day, when I don't feel like sketching and inking anymore, I watch TV with Jess and color on my iPad. I must say, Procreate is amazing.
