maybe i'll watch it on mute

youtube

ooooooookay here it is, my first speedpaint!  it’s got no music b/c i’m lazy and to be honest i always mute other people’s speedpaints and listen to my own stuff when i watch (true confessions right here), so i didn’t see the need for music.  also it’s pretty long and i couldn’t make it any shorter without cutting out the sketching.  i think in future that’s probably what i’ll do to keep things short, but i wanted to share my process from the beginning!  anyway, if you watch this the whole way through you’re a trooper lmao.

OH MY GODDESS I JUST FINISHED THIS. I STARTED THIS LAST NIGHT AND FINISHED IT JUST NOW.

AND I STILL DON’T THINK IT’S THAT GOOD.

BUT REGARDLESS HERE IT IS.

LITTLE MERMAID AU, GO.


Once upon a time there was a young mermaid, named Marinette.

She lived with her mother and father, who ruled the underwater kingdom. Marinette was also friends with a fairy, named Tikki. Marinette loved the surface world, and often admired the humans on the surface from afar. “Marinette, you can’t be up here. You know this!” Tikki constantly reminded her. “I know…I just…they’re so pretty…” Marinette whispered, admiring the gowns that the noble women wore.

Marinette gasped and dove into the water as a child spotted her and began to wave

“Mommy! Mommy! There’s a lady on the rock over there!”

Marinette sighed in relief as she landed in the water, smiling apologetically as Tikki swam up to her, glaring into her eyes. “I told you so!” she said. Marinette sighed “I know…I just…I wish I could at least talk with them someday…” Marinette whispered “You know that’s forbidden…land and sea must remain separate; those are the rules” Tikki said.

“I know…” Marinette sighed once more.

Okay, so this is very crappy but I wanted to see the BS bits only so I did this! There’s no audio in some bits because there were dialogues from other shows playing at those times, and also I’m so sorry the music’s so annoying. Wish I could isolate what RandL are saying but anyway, there it is!

(If you watch it on mute it looks like a proper BS trailer, haha).
