Love the Sea

Here's what I have so far. I didn't get my blender prints done, I just ran out of time! I am so happy with what I managed to accomplish, though!

Here are a few the my digitized items. I took me a while to nail down how to do the tesselation pattern of the faces, so I didn't get as much done as I wanted.  I also used Inkpad for the first time to create the large coral. It's such a different way than I am used to working! My plan is to incorporate some of these elements into the hair/face of the mermaids, as little vingettes.  Here is my sketch page:

I'm a messy sketcher, so it's not much to look at.

My inspiration for this collection is from an idea I had for a pattern that I never did anything with or finished, which was orginally inspired by mermaids and the sea. I've always loved mermaids - I don't know why because I am NOT a water person! I love the feminitiy they represent. How you often see them dripping in pearls, gold coins from old shipwrecks and sea kelp head tiaras. I also really like the variety of beautiful shapes from coral, sea urchins and other sea creatures. I am excited to see if I can pull it all together!
