A Debutante Vampire and Other Strange Mermaids

Three Themed Mermaids (click to enlarge)
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

I would like to present what may be a new preoccupation, and that is the “themed mermaid”. Inspired by a “Themed Mermaids” swap at illustratedatcs.com, here we have a Vampire Debutante Mermaid, a 1970s Vampire Mermaid and a Harlequin Mermaid.

My only regret in this bunch is the unbroken highlight lines on the Harlequin. The Sakura Gellyroll pen does not scratch off with a fingernail like Signo Uniball. (But it is a much thinner and equally bright line. I think.)

These three creatures are numbers 176 – 178 of the 200 Maidens. Meanwhile, the Spirit Masks are now collected in their own set. (And I have two more to post, for next time.)

Thanks for dropping in! I seem to be having trouble with a consistent schedule now that the January and February challenge months are done. Also, work is busier. Blargh.

    Fantastic!! They are both beautiful yet ghoulish.
    BTW – I took a look at your 178 maidens and they are truly amazing……some of them I had not seen at all! What are you planning on doing w them when you reach 200? SHould really try to get them published……

    The First Vampire is my fav….love her hair :) They are all very detail and unique. I’m having trouble staying focus on my art right now too… just putzing around all willy nilly :(

    I see your point about the highlight on the harlequin, but it just makes her look wet and shiny, and that seems right for a mermaid. Love your Afghan Hound too!
