The Little Mermaid

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

'And the Little Mermaid leaned with her white arms on the rail and looked to the east for a sign of the rosy dawn' This is a uni assignment, for Illustration 292. It's been on my deviantArt page for a while, but I thought it would be nice to upload it here too. The brief was to choose an artist who uses dry medium (I chose coloured pencil artist Anne Yvonne Gilbert) and draw an illustration for a line of a book/poem/film/etc (I chose Anderson's 'The Little Mermaid') using their style. I could have done better recreating her style, but, then again, it could have been worse, and people seemed to like it. It got a bit rushed towards the end, unfortunately, but overall I think it looks ok. Size: A bit under A3 Time Taken: around 25 hours, but I could have done with longer. Materials: Quill 110gsm sketching paper, prismacolour pencils. This version isn't very good quality, and I can't seem to work out why, so to see it better, please head to my deviantart page: This image is also avaliable to see at my deviantart gallery:
