Under the Ice by Pen-umbra Under the Ice by Pen-umbra
A new paper illustration for a friend of mine at work :iconairangale: . I brought in the book "Confetti" by Brittany Lee a few weeks ago to work and my friend loved the mermaids in it (it's an awesome book! Go check out her work here: britsketch.blogspot.com/).

So I decided to do a different take on a mermaid for her. It was a lot of fun! I've had a lot of stressful things going on the last few months, so my creativity really dried up. But this idea got into my head and I had it drawn out, cut up, and glued down all within a week! Looking forward to the next project now!

This is one of those pieces that I look at and think "I have never seen anything like this before!" Excellent work! I've never seen an orca mermaid before :) And this is so beautifully illustrated, and I love the bead details!

Haha! That's such a cool idea to use paper cut outs to make a composition. I love that you chose to do one of Sedna.

This IS different! It's a coldwater mermaid! In fact, it's an all mammal mermaid! :XD: And it's not a whale sized mermaid 'cause there's a seal there.
