Hello creative community,

I got this prompt from IG while I was checking my feed, it is #mermay2021. I think this is an interesting theme and gave it a try. So I created this doodle of a mermaid. I want it to be wearing clothes or a uniform. Short hair and anything that is not typical for a mermaid.

Here are some process photos for you

At first I was thinking of a busy woman hustling and holding an umbrella as shown on my rough sketch

I love the sharp clean lines and went for it until this masculine looking figure came about

The base colors I want to look conservative like a uniform. Nothing fancy or bright

I love the embroidery details on the back of the jacket as well as the epaulets or shoulder details. It was fun making this drawing hope that you like it.
