~velveterotica had been asking me to draw her a mermaid for a tattoo. I'm so flattered and so self conscious about it it's taken me a few years to get to it... so I'm drawing her a series of many, many mermaids so she can pick a favorite.

Color pencils.

I love all of them this one kind of reminds of Uvita. I've really missed your drawings I'm glad your drawing again.

Purple mohawks = forever Uvita. But she's supposed to be a beta mermaid. :D
Thanks for the support, Soph, I really do enjoy it (drawing again). :heart:

I like her as a mermaid. You should draw me again. :P I'm hoping to get a tablet soon that way it would be easier to draw & color instead of just scanning everything it gets time consuming. I think maybe you just needed a break from drawing so that you could head back into it at full force. <3

Very vibrant. The background really gives the mermaid life.

Thank you! I recently realized a background makes a big difference.
