I have a new pinup of the month for you. This Rainbow mermaid is a semi-self portrait! When I was a kid, and adults would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would say “A mermaid”…which got me even more odd looks than usual.
But though I never sprouted a tail I still love them and love to draw them. The tail is the most important part of a mermaid drawing..obviously.. and there is so much potential for what you can do with it. For this design I was inspired by Beta fish. I loved their bright colours and the way their fins trail like shredded tulle and chiffon on a couture evening gown.
Today I started work on a new custom mermaid portrait which is super fun. You didn’t know you could have your pin-up girl portrait done as a mermaid? well now you do. So I thought today was a good day to share the Pinup of the Month for March 2016. I hope you like her.
I also created a mermaids collection on Zazzle with some of my favorite mermaid art and gifts. Enjoy.
