Lovely Day for a Swim by VivaFariy Lovely Day for a Swim by VivaFariy
It's a mermaid, relaxing, in the summer time!

Wow, my third contest entry for :iconpixiedust-inc::devpixieduxt-inc:. I was really only going to do the first two, but this one came to my head right after I submitted the others.

I went to DA Muro, and drew the lake, plants, rock, and the sun. Then I pasted it into Gimp, and continued there. The part that I did on Muro is definatly better. I wouldn't say this is my best drawing, but it's nice, and there's no base at all.

I hope you like it! Please give your opinion and feedback!

(C) VivaFariy

made in DA Muro and Gimp 2.8 (over the course of 2 days, I don't know how many hours exactly)

((Oh, and I was too lazy to shade))

#This looks like a good jump from using singly bases. The more you practice drawing free hand, soon... Your art will be better than the bases you've used in the past. Honestly, Good work! Keep it up.

Thank you! I'll be posting something soon that is completely mine, without a base or background of someone else. I hope to stop using bases soon.

YOU DIDN'T USE A BASE <33
You've improved from what I can see. ^^ Obviously I can't tell from the shading since you didn't shade, but you get the idea. xD

I KNOW! I'm soo proud of myself, even though it came out really bad.
Thank you! Good starts off somewhere, right?
Maybe I'll go back and try to shade it. I'd actually love to do that, if I find time

Dude. How do you even do mermaid tails. Like. I can't. I've never been able to lol.
This looks really good considering you didn't use a base :la:

Well... I looked at a Google image and tried to copy it...?

Thank you very much. I don't think it looks great, but I'm proud of myself for not using a base.

I love drawing flowers - it's the only thing I'm actually good at, lol.

TOO MAGICAL FOR THINKING //dead/

Yeah I was like never really interested in flowers, so I never really taught myself how to draw them well. Which is was a huge mistake because now I just like cannot even do them XD Like I can do the little simple easy flowers obviously but I can't do beautiful ones XD
