Sketches from last week’s life drawing session with Andy posing.
I like to follow #MerMay on Twitter, which is a yearly drawing event where artist draw mermaids all month long. This is my first time taking part, though I’ve not been drawing every day! My mermaid is inspired by the Sea Girl from ‘The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’, who Lucy sees as the ship passes by.
“Suddenly she saw a little Sea Girl of about her own age in the middle of them – a quiet, lonely-looking girl with a sort of crook in her hand. Lucy felt sure that this girl must be a shepherdess – or perhaps a fish-herdess – and that the shoal was really a flock at pasture.”
Recently I animated a couple of elements for the new Skoog advert, which you can watch below.
I animated the girl’s moustache, plus several ‘flourishes’ throughout the video. I’ve added a couple of examples as gifs below.
