Lo que hacía mientras se hacían los dormidos

...have I already posted this? :D

I always thought of finishing this and coloring it, but for some reason I've finally ended loving it as it is: with the upper branches as just lines and the sketchiness of the grays in it...

...would you look at my technical artist vocabulary? "Sketchiness"... XD

A lo mejor me hace falta ir a nadar...

Yes, I've been on a mermaid rush lately but this one's actually a year, or a year and a half old. I just painted her sister for a commission where I was asked to do "a very similar piece" - so I'll try and post it later.

I don't know if it's just me, but there's something very interesting in the shapes mermaids can take and how they work with the whole composition/line-action business. Hence, I seem to be in love with drawing mermaids.

I'll also try to get a better picture of this piece. Yep yep.
