This was a doodle I did during math I think...then I spent a while colouring it. I like having tons of layers for some reason, it makes me think that I really worked hard on something.
I talked to my art teacher about it and she said she liked the underwater effect, so booyah. Also, when I started it, I wanted something other than blue and green, because those are the auto colours for mermaids when I draw them. Soooo instead, I have purple hair and a golden tail. I guess she's a part of royalty, or something.
And the thing she's leaning against was inspired by the thing that Ariel leans against while picking flower petals and the centerpiece for "Under the sea".
Hope you like~!
