Mermaid by markcrilley Mermaid by markcrilley
This is the drawing I created for my "How to Draw a Mermaid" YouTube video yesterday. There are two versions:

SHORT VERSION (under 2 mins): www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBKu--…
LONG VERSION (narrated step-by-step tutorial): www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsP51R…

Sorry for the lack of updates lately-- I'm crazy busy with work these days! ^_^' If any of you are on Instagram that's a great way of seeing pics from me more frequently. You can follow me there at "markcrilleyREAL": instagram.com/markcrilleyreal

Thanks!

~Mark

My only problem with this is that the dots inside the mermaid are the exact same as the dots in the background, leaving just the highlights and line art to differentiate her from the background. Personally, I would have shaded the tail, and maybe the bra a but darker to help her stand out a bit more and to help the two things suggest they're differently colored from the character.

Did my drawing based on this... let's say she's a bit more grown up in my version.

I Hope is not an inconvenience that I'm rendering Your characters in a not-so-innocent way. I know you lecture at schools and such and your art is, let's say "G-rated".

However I don't think anyone is going to mistake my art for yours, so, that's not a risk. Anyway, let me know if you have any objection to it.
