Mermaid's Spring by Erich Heidewald

Mermaid's Spring
by Erich Heidewald

Prompt: spring mermaid
prompted by: laura Buehrer, during Sketch Fest #34 (March, 2013)

My first attempt at drawing a face without reference. Those other things are ferns around the spring grotto. :) 9.25" x 8" graphite on sketch paper. Adjusted so we can see it onscreen.


Jenny Heidewald says: Looks good! Shouldn't there be a bunch of snow in there? ;D Ferns = Pretty, but evil to draw! I only attempted the one, for the maidenhair fern lady. :) ~ Reply?

     Erich Heidewald replied to this: And those are maidenhair ferns too... I think maybe these are warm springs. :))

Coriander Shea says: You did great without a reference! ~ Reply?

     Erich Heidewald replied to this: Thank you! I think her tail fin looks like a clump of grass though. :D
