Hello book lovers!<3 For those who don’t know what Mermay is, it’s a challenge where the artist draws a mermaid every day during May. It is a great exercise to practice your drawing skills but I generally I can’t keep up with any monthly challenges 😂
To be honest I wasn’t planning doing any mermaid at all this month but after seeing so many good artworks out there I was little inspired to do at least one mermaid! One mermaid became two, and when I noticed I had 5 mermaids in my hands! I’m very pleased that I’ve done so many but unfortunately I have to focus on other projects and my mermay is finished for me!👍
So my collection hasn’t a specific theme, I just did 5 mermaids with 5 different colors in the same style 😊 I stared drawing my girls on my sketchbook like I normally do and then I finished them on Procreate using my iPad Pro. Although I did them digitally I used a watercolor brush to make them look like to most close to tradicional, and I liked the final result and I hope you too!🤗
My mermay mermaids are available as laminated bookmarks on my Etsy store (click here) so go check it out if you want one (or more) for yourself!
I hope you liked these illustrations and thank you for checking out! ❤
