IF - Mermaid


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday's topic 'Mermaid'.  It started as a rough scribbly silhouette in pencil that I liked so I scanned it in and finished it up in Photoshop.  I'm trying to do illustrations faster, so I didn't go in to much detail.  

When I think of 'mermaid', I immediately think of Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' (which according to my mum is the first movie I saw at the cinema) so it is no surprise that it kinda looks like Ariel.  

The Rough Sketch

Peace Lily

I always end up drawing the plant that sits next to my desk when I want to play around with digital painting and sketching.  So here is a quick sketch I just did in Photoshop.

My Peace Lily

You'll notice it has no flowers.  In fact it has only produced one flower since I got it.  I think that means it's unhappy, but not sure.

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

During my visit to the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh I did some quick sketches of faces from the portraits taken by the American artist Taryn Simon.  Here they are.
