Tom Bancroft launched this challenge of drawing one mermaid per day in May :) I have fallen behind sadly, but here are the first 8 ! One of them is not like the others ;)

Anastasia is the one who's different. She isn't a Disney princess. Anastasia was made by Don Bluth and fox

Wow, they're all gorgeous as mermaids! I especially love the looks of Rapunzel, Tiana, Moana, and Belle. I think I know what fish Moana's tail resembles: Did you by chance base her look off the reef trigger fish? (...Or in Hawaiian: the humuhumunukunukuapua'a, or "trigger fish with a snout like a pig").

Actually I'm not sure ! I googled tropical fish and looked at the results :) I don't remember if I found one I liked and used the same colors, or if I found several and kind of merged the colors !

This amazing piece makes more since now that Anastasia became Disney after the Fox purchase.

I love this so much. Princesses + mermaids is always a win in my book, but you created great designs on top of two of my favorite aesthetics! Absolutely lovely.
