    Ruling the Ocean Blue

    Drew a companion piece to the mermaid drawing posted in November. This character however, seems to be an angry king, ruling the ocean with an iron fist.

    Mermaid & perceiving color

    Working on a mermaid illustration:

    Above: original journal sketch using pen and markers 

    Above: sketch converted to a vector graphic in Illustrator. Orange hair works much better than gold against the blue background

    Above: noted a perceived color difference between the left and right jaw and ear outline due to the orange and blue backgrounds. Need to find a hue to draw the left outline to more closely match the right side
