siren by loish siren by loish
I sketched a mermaid inspired by the Gibson girl style of the late 1800s, and then painted it on the iPad! Drawn for MerMay, which is sadly over now, but I've seen enough mermaids to last me a lifetime now :')

Sketched on paper, colored in with the iPad pro with Procreate.

Every time I see your art, my soul sheds a tear for how beautiful it is. No other art has affected me so deeply and inspired me as much as your work. It almost makes me want to cry it's so magnificent

Love this drawing so much!

Also, btw, I know you do a lot of pro creation on ipad. Ive been looking into getting an ipad so I can get pro creation too but I heard that only the pro can be drawn on? Is that true or can any 2017+ ipad be drawn on?

Ok cool. The other person has a pro as well so I think I'll be safe and get that one.

And always! I've been a lurker for years, you're one of my absolute favorite artists and style inspirations :heart:

She looks more real with that beautiful body type, I mean a little bit more curvy than the typical mermaid. Also her face reflects a strong but approachable personality.
I don't know if that made sense, but I love this.

Love your unique and friendly style to paint characters.
Sometimes it makes me think you really like the characters you are drawing.
At least that's my perception.
Together with your attention to detail this makes it another favourite to me.
