The Captain and The Siren by Following-The-Rabbit The Captain and The Siren by Following-The-Rabbit
A commission for the wonderful :iconjakexj4evr:

Everyone do a little dance with me.
So, here's another commission I was given a bit of freedom with. All I was given was the concept: Jack Sparrow in a rowboat, with Ariel in the water.
First off,  I love concept. It's adorable, and I was really excited to start this one.
However, there were a lot of elements that I ran into that really tested my patience with myself. One of them being my unfamiliarity with drawing row boats and water. However, the biggest concern of mine was that I hadn't done a full-fledged watercolor piece since summer.

Granted, I was given the freedom to work with whatever medium I chose, but I felt that watercolor would look the best. I don't know, man, it sounded right.

Then I decided to go out on a limb and try out a bunch of different techniques. Everything from the back to the front was done with a different technique than I'm used to, and I did it all while working directly off the transfer sketch, rather than putting down a line art before-hand.

I got a bit shaky towards the end, but I really like how it turned out?
I mean, I don't know, I'm just fairly happy with how it turned out.

It's a good feeling, man.

Cute concept, but I think it would be better if Jack's gaze was meeting Ariel's.

God, I hope not. I hear it's miserable to work for them.

Thanks a bunch! Watercolors have been difficult for me since I was very young, so I'm glad I'm at least doing alright now <3

That was my very next guess.
In which case, I have no lawyer and no money. Is lady prison the next step? I'm down.

Uhhhhhh I haven't researched it that much ^^; I wasn't expecting you to volunteer for it :XD: Not expecting that lol

And don't be so quick to sign up. They might send you off to work in one of their theme park mines!
