A LITTLE MERMAID
Not THE little mermaid, just one that could be related. This is a marker, inks, and colored pencils rendition of the Mermaid drawing I posted a monthish ago. I wanted to finish it up to trade with a friend. He gave me this incrediable pastel landscape painting and I feel like this is so unworthy but he requested it. I hope it goes over okay. I took the original rough sketch (in red) and inked over it then added the marker and pencil highlights. I'm not sure it works because the rough pencils still show through. There is this grey area between a good rough drawing and a tight, finished drawing. If you get too close to the middle it just looks bad. I'm still not sure where this one sits but it's done.
