"Pink Ribbon Mermaid" -- line art in pen on paper, digitally colored free handed in Corel Painter on Intuos 3 tablet
The second mermaid in less than a month, she was painted to be made into an exclusive tube only available at a breast cancer research fund raiser event, Taking Back PSP, to be held on March 23, 2012. I'm one of the 22 participating artists donating exclusive image tubes. Please see my blog for more information on the fund raiser
and a preview of the tube image.
As an exclusive tube for a single event, this mermaid (with a transparent background, licensed for tag use) will only be available at the event and nowhere else afterwards.
I like letting my mermaids play with found objects. ^^ This one is similar to my "The Red Slipper" in concept -- the mermaid tries on the pretty stuff discarded/dropped by humans into the sea. They're contemporary and playful, lighthearted and happy.
A-D Jr. thought she reminded her of Sailor Moon, and it made me laugh! She's right... the bright pinks do remind me of that series. ^^
