The mermaid rejoices in her wilderness…

Mermaid drawing © Evelyn Howard 2010 

I drew the figure in pen, then scanned the sketch into the computer. Using Photoshop, I added the background (a photograph of the sea) and colours.

ced-2010This piece is completed based on Illustration Friday’s theme for this week: “wilderness”.

Love the pose of your red mermaid! She surely enjoys the sea. And from first glance, I didn't realize the sea background is from a photo. You merged the two medium seamlessly. Well Done! :)

Wow, this is gorgeous, I'd love to be a mermaid immersed in true wilderness - the sea.

This is really gorgeous. I love that you did it both by hand and did some work on the computer.

Love mermaids, too. Beautiful!
