This painting was request by a friend of mine at work. She asked for a mermaid for her daughter as a Christmas present. So, I tried to go for a Disney vibe with some elements of the ocean mixed in. For example, her hair resembles the design of a jellyfish.
It took me a couple days to figure out the best design for this pic. I used several layers to get the shading and light of the background just right. Overall, I’m happy with how this painting turned out.
On another note, I’m not sure if I’ll be taking requests just yet, but I’ll be sure to post on here and my deviant art account if I plan to.
Until then, Happy New Year’s!
