arena mermaid

for fist-a-cuffs’ arena-girl challenge:


her name is hannah. why hannah? because i asked jen what her name should be and she said, “hannah”. that’s creative processing at it’s finest, folks!

    Fabulous! Unfortunately for your competitors this entry means there’s only 11 spots left since this is a lock for a win.

    I was wondering what was wrong with my creative process, and now I know: I’ve never asked Jen what my arena mermaids should be named.

    That’s an awesome design. I love the loose hair in her face and the way the flag is tangled around her fin. Really cool. And I totally get your naming process. I frequently go to my daughter for names. She seems to know, with out equivocation, what a character’s name is.

    Hey Mike, that’s one cute mermaid! Though I think she raided the Disney wardrobe room for those clamshells…
