Oh hey, back at it!

I like to draw these on my way to and from Oahu where I've been helping art direct some of the new stuff we've created for the Aulani resort. I usually do about 3 per flight... the rest of the time is spent passed out after a glass of crappy airplane wine. On the most recent trip on the way to Oahu I did the 3 of the coolest mermaid chubsters, but unfortunately something happened in the program I was using and I lost them. Now I take screen shots out of paranoia of losing work.

The program I've been using to draw them (if you're curious) is called Clibe. It's a pretty cool program... except for the part where it crashed and I lost all my art. :( The brush they've programed is pretty awesome. It has a really natural feel with the ink being forward on your stroke and tapered with loss of ink with the drag. It mimics felt pen and that is something I really love. Someone tell me how to make the same damn brush in Photoshop.

Here are some portly fish ladies. Enjoy!

Day 19

Maybe little reef sharks are the same as having a cat here on land. Cute cuddly and like to snuggle.

day 18

This has become my own Julie and Julia project. Instead of cooking delectable delights of daring dinners I am drawing fictional creatures. Seriously if I can do this for a whole year it will be the longest project ever.

Day 17

What a pain in the arse. What was I thinking? A mermaid every day? I feel like I've already ran out of chubby mermaid poses as well as hair styles. They're all starting to melt together. I haven't even finished a MONTHS worth of mermaids. Oh god why did I commit to doing this ridiculous project? I persevere.
