I remember thinking that when seeing images of a hippocampus and tadfoals Just like...ooooh yeah that makes sense and oh gosh it's so cute can't wait to see what you come up with!

MerMay "bubble"

sketch phase


inspiration prompt #23 "bubble" and a bubble bath
materials Ohuhu brush tip markers, copic fine inking pens 0.1, Gelly R@ll White 1.0

First thing that came to mind with the word bubble was that scene in The Little Mermaid where Ariel is taking a bath and she catches and blows bubbles. I hate with a fiery passion drawing hands...so I wasn't about to attempt hands cradling some bubbles...but I couldn't get the bubble bath image out of my head so stuck with that and hid the hands She almost looks like my character Candela if she were a mermaid. Almost. I think her inspiration is certainly in here though.

And a nice long warm bubble bath is precisely how I like to wind down my days. With Tea. And Netflix
