Hi, everyone!
I’m taking part in competition of concept arts for famous russian fairy tail “Ruslan and Ludmila”. I am going to create 10 concepts of people and creatures. 
This is the concept of mermaid.

I had an incredibly sweet commission for a gift for Father’s Day recently: drawings for a story written by the mother of these two little girls, featuring her family and a hapless little dino, unable to fly home with a hurt wing. Luckily the girls take care of the sad critter and their dad manages to fix things.

Thank you Anitia for this inspired commission for a personal family story!
