Shocked mermaid - drawn using chalk by heylorlass


The name isn't very imaginative I know. But it's 5 to 12 and I'm tired.
I coloured a copy of one of my older sketches and I think it turned out reasonably well. Again I used chalk. I tried to make shafts of light cast shadow over her in the water. And yes, I did give her webbed hands.
This mermaid looks surprised and shocked and is veering away from whatever has frightened her. That's the idea I had when I was drawing her. But she might just look like she is all weird and demented ... but it's all part of the plan !! ( ha ha - she says )
I'm pretty pleased with this overall. It took me about an hour and a half at most.

heylorlassReally! Well, the colour variation is due to using the same brush over and over and getting flecks of the previous colours sticking to it. More good luck than anything else.... but hey! It seems to work!
So forget everything your art teacher tells you and Don't wash your brush when using chalk! *lol*
