Mermaid with Friends


As you might already know, my very first Art Walk is this Saturday, January 11th — please stop by at Son of a Bean Coffee House for some awesome coffee and beautiful artwork!

If you look back a little earlier on my work, you’ll see this little mermaid, sweet image is Birthday Fishes by Tiddly Inks, first created in August 2013 —- she was my very first artwork with Copic markers so yes, she will always be close to my heart. Of course, coloring the main image is always the most fun! I color the images with Copic Markers (list of markers below plus the final photo) spending a lot of attention to details and quality. Please take a look at the very detailed tutorial: Coloring Hair with Copic Markers 1.1 that I created with this very same image.

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize the artwork with a name, a quote or a special message for you! There are really endless options. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Please visit my Etsy Store and  Facebook Page for more ideas and colored images. 

I am also posting more detailed photos below, please check them out too.

hugs, Rita
