Creating creepy-cute creatures for mermay!
#Mermay is an annual online event where artists from all over the world create mermaid art and share in on social media. This year, (2020) I went a bit left field and mixed bugs with fish to make weird mer-bug creatures!
I also wanted to use the time to work on my digital oil painting skills. These mer-bugs were painted in Artrage.
Usually I have a hard time getting past the first week in an art challenge, not because I don’t want to, but because real life tends to creep in and work piles up. This year, however, it lasted much longer than any other art challenge I’ve done. I’ve been really looking forward to my daily painting of a strange fish bug creature every day for mermay!
But, the important thing, (at least what I tell myself) is that I’m actually doing this mermay challenge, I’m continuing, and not giving up. I’m having fun, AND I feel like I’m getting better at digital oil painting.
Have you participated in #mermay this year or in the past? Give me a shout on instagram and share — I’d love to see!
