Siren's Call by CrystalCurtis Siren's Call by CrystalCurtis
I had the honor to do a traditional art trade with the wonderfully talented Sibylline Meynet~
She requested uniquely-colored hair, and said she loved pin-ups and mermaids, so voila!
I thought about how we listen to the ocean in shells, so maybe a mermaid would try to hear
our world in a tin can. q: I used Prismacolor markers and colored pencils for this. It was the
first time I've used those markers and stuff in YEARS! (I was relieved to find that the markers
still worked, since they were about a decade old... lol)

please do not use without my permission, thank you~

That's a great concept, and I totally thought this was digital at first, but it looks great traditional. Love this take on the mermaid ^0^
