a little mermaid drawing

last week, a couple of my friends were drawing mermaids. not wanting to be left out, i drew one too, and just got around to coloring her this morning.


not quite as unique or cool as their mermaids, and a bit too ariel looking, but at least now i can add “have drawn mermaid” to my resumè.

and joel carroll pointed me to this really sad news this morning as well… :(

i only knew mike from online- from his blog and forum chatting and whatnot. but from what i gathered, he was an extremely nice guy and an insanely talented artist. you could tell his love of art, and especially the comics medium, in every post and comment he wrote. the news of his passing comes as a shock and is a great loss to both the comics and internet communities. his family will be in my prayers.

    Yay mermaid fever continues to infect everyone! This is great Mike. I love how she seems to be on the go, in the middle of some sort of mermaidy adventure. :)

    Actually it is cool and original. I like the way she is enteracting with the bubbles. And her hair is really cool.

      mish- yes! please do!

      sarah- she’s going to fight evil sharks. :)

      shakespear- thanks, dude!

      bogar- thank you!

      ali- the scaley tail was actually kinda fun. except that i draw scales and feathers the same way. and yeah- mike’s passing really put a damper on that day. it’s been nice to read so many kind words dedicated to him on the internet this week.

      thank you!

      I can see the strong resemblance to Ariel that you pointed out…to get awy from the comparison, make her blonde. LOL.
