I wanted to draw something for Mermay. This is a super old OC from 10+ years ago that I named Pamela. This is how she looked back in the day. I've been feeling inspired by art nouveau lately so I wanted to incorporate that into a drawing. I have a bunch of other one-shot mermaid OCs, maybe I should draw them too!

By the way I finally made a Twitter account. I'll be posting sketches, wips, etc. Please check it out if you're interested! twitter.com/longestdstance
I feel like one of the cool, hip kids now :dummy:

Yep. Pixiv has a bunch of really good resources under the "フリー素材" tag. All free to use of course!

oh wow, how did you type that? XD
i tried googling it and it says free 1000 users something, i'll take a look at it some time to see if i can find some awesome resources that i can add to my art

thank you so much!

Behold, my weeb powers ;p I used to take Japanese in middle and high school, so I know just enough to navigate Pixiv.

Add 100 or 1000 to your search query, and it filters stuff that's been bookmarked by over 100 people (or 500 or 1000) so that way you only find the best of the best.

I'm left in awe. Your Pamela is beautiful and as an admirer of art nouveau I like the detailed crescent. Funny enough at first sight I thought it was your take on Pamela of the Atelier gaming series which I love 😆
