Here is my entry for the SCBWI draw this competition. There is some great work out there already for this new challenge.

I pen and ink with some Illustrator and Photoshop to make the final product. Below are some stops along the path.

Thanks to fellow SCBWI members Annina and Stephen  for some suggestions. bounce1


Mermaid pen and ink illustration for SCBWI

Pen and ink illustration on Borden and Riley Paris Bleedproof Paper for Pens.

This is one of my favorite mediums to work. I have found that the Broden and Riley paper is the best to work with, though I do use hot press if I intend to watercolor the picture.

This is another sample for my art group of an illustration that I am going to submit to the SCBWI bulletin. I like the detail and I think mermaids are a pretty hot commodity, since everyone is getting tired of vampires.
