For Mermay month I created this little cutie losing a particular piece of her wardrobe.
I started with the basics by sketching with a blue pencil. I then used a darker color to make the definitive drawing.
Then it’s time to start the layering. I use a couple of different peach tones for her skin.
I like color contrasts, because they create a stronger image.
When I’m done, I add strong highlights with titanium white acrylic paint. Then add some bubbles, because of course, she lives under water. And done!
