Good morning, Oddies! Alexis here bringing some Friday fun with the new Mermaid image from Kristy’s Patreon account! I’m completely obsessed with the artwork she’s offering over there and I highly suggest you pop over and pledge a monthly amount to get your hands on these sweet drawings!

Coloring wise though, I wanted to make her tail look iridescent and her hair look like an ocean wave. I’m so happy with how she turned out that I wanted to keep the card simple. I found great paper that matched my colors, a few sequins and my sentiment bubble.
We have a new release coming soon, so check back soon to hear more!
