Side Faces and Acrylic Paint.

Over on Jane's lovely little art nook, its acrylic paint week, so the last two days I've gotten into the spirit of things, using mostly paint and a little bit of inky pen and a smidge of prismacolour pencil for acents.

I've always said, side faces make me their minion, I've had the desire to draw girls from a different view than side on for longer than I care to admit.

so here is my little mermaid inspire sea goddess.

I used alot of acrylic paints watered down and layered over and over, distress stain for her hair mixed with watered down paint, some inky pen for a few little detail touches, and a little pencil for some shading where I felt it needed it.

also a hand made spray ink background, tomorrow I will add some more, I'm off to watch the last harry potter on the couch with the boy, yes I've already seen it but I don't care!

enjoy your night
see you tomorrow with more art.
