[EDIT: I am submitting this to Illustration Friday for the topic “Children”. She may be a sulky sea cow princess, but she is also a child, just waiting impatiently to grow up so she can do whatever she wants!]
As first in line for the Lavender Throne, Lula the manatee is forbidden from doing many fun things, so she has long days to sulk and worry about her future responsibilities. Some days, her friend Mork the seahorse can’t even stir up interest in a game of Bug Stones.
I must admit I think she and her friend are very cute. Here is my manatee reference photo.
An eel maiden. Admittedly she does not look a lot like an eel, but she’s got that sinuous neck and I prefer eel maiden to snake maiden. Both of these were created for a “People of the Sea” swap at illustratedatcs.com. I am not running that swap, but it was inspired by my People of the Forest one. (Lots of People of the Forest art cards in previous posts!)
I am also thrilled to report that my blog friend Koosje Koene has featured my work on her blog! If you get a moment, go see! You can also find Koosje on her website and she’s got some great mini drawing tutorials on her Youtube page. Thanks so much, Koosje!
Thanks to everyone for stopping in! Lots of progress pic below!
