For those of you who don’t know about MerMay it is this rather popular Art Challenge on Instagram with 168k posts in the past 13 days! It was started by Tom Bancroft a Disney Animator and Character Designer with different words for each day to prompt the artwork.
7 ◊ Tranquil
I’ve always loved that Riviera poster image, you know the one, and have been inspired by it with today’s post.
The tranquil mermaid waiting adound floating on the Sea..
8 ♦ Heroic
When I read today’s prompt I knew I wanted to create the typical hero stance with the most famous aquatic Superhero: Aquaman.
I had a lot of fun drawing this on my iPad and I am rather proud of the face I drew.
9 ◊ Best Buddy
I’ve been watching Adventure Time on NowTV Kids Pass the last month or so and have found it as funny as I hoped.
I love these two main characters and the weird adventures they get up to so I had to create them for today’s prompt!
10 ♦ Ashamed
I wasn’t sure what to really make for today’s prompt and I have to say this was one of my hardest ones to come up with something for.
But I decided to create this little drawing with a sense of being ashamed to it..
11 ◊ Outcast
For this prompt I immediately had an image in my head for a print I wanted to create for this and couldn’t wait to get stuck into it.
I experiemented with various different coloured card and this is my favourite of the lot with this blue ink blots.. Will share other prints soon I’m sure.
12 ♦ Fury
Who can resist making a mermaid Nick Fury when that idea pops in your head? I know I can’t.
I knew he had to be wearing the iconic black coat but I also wanted to make it look moody and dark in style and I think I have managed to accomplish this.
13 ◊ Alien
For today’s sculpt I wanted to go back to my roots a little and make a little swimming xenomorph, one of the most infamous monster of the Alien Franchise.
Almost making it cute with this little 2 pence piece sized version of itself, what do you guys think?
