Pirate Mermaid and Octopus Sidekick

Pirate Mermaid and Octopus Sidekick - student project

This is my first fully digital illustration. I normally sketch everything on paper and then render on Illustrator because I just didn't know how to sketch or color using Photoshop. So, I'm really happy I took this class. I learned so much and I really enjoyed working on this assignment.

Here's a link to the inspiration board I created for this class: https://www.pinterest.ph/hellocarawrrr/mermaid-pirate/

These are my initial sketches:

Here's how it looked after creating the shapes in Illustrator:

And here's the final output:

I specifically drew an open mouth for the pirate mermaid's face because I just thought it was so cool the way Matt rendered his pirate's mouth, and I wanted to try it out myself. :D
