Procreate MerMay 2018 Finished!!

Digital Paintings, monthyartprompts, Original Art, Sketches

Hi, i’m back!

The MerMay challenge was started by Tom Bancroft in May 2016 when he posted this on his Instagram. He basically invited artists to post a Mermaid drawing every day in the month of May… I think the purpose is still same as that of Inktober (to develop the habit); which I fully subscribe to. my drawing habit has really improved since doing these daily sketch/paint challenges so I participated in Mermay 2018. plus I haven’t drawn any mermaids before so I thought this is another challenge that it’s not in my comfort zone.

Here’s what I thought before starting this challenge:
Possibly I can do this during my lunch breaks at work. they will probably be just sketches but maybe will have nicer output on weekends πŸ™‚ let’s see how it turns out. however, I fear I will easily run out of new ideas as I could only think of a few mermaid concepts. (surprisingly I ended up with a big variety of mermaid/merfolk concepts)

I did this year’s MerMay challenge following the prompt list provided by Procreate πŸ™‚ (#ProcreateMerMay)

Most of the entries I made are done in under an hour (sketch during lunch and finished before bedtime). Some were well-thought of, others were top-of-my-head concepts; on some days I had the luxury of a few hours to really paint in details;

Oh, and there are also some that got featured in the Procreate weekly top picks! something to be really happy about!

Here’s my Space mermaid in Week1 along with works of other Procreate artists!
