Purple Water Sprite

Purple Water Sprite
5x7" colored pencil & graphite on bristol board

I have always thought that water sprites and mermaids should be just as mysterious and deadly as their less fantastical counterparts...

Also, I know I'm a bit behind the curve on this, but I'm currently OBSESSED with this book.The Hunger Games

Anyway, I hope everyone is well! Have a very happy Valentine's Day! 
Does anyone have special plans? ^_-

  1. Oh! This is wonderful! I was drawn to this straight away. I love the deep purples and high contrasting white silhouettes for the water plants, all those details the way it stems off everywhere and yet flows so perfectly, you are amazing :)

  3. Mysteriously beautiful! Love the purple. I like how you make the light glowing around her. Seems like she has some magic to lure you in :-)

    I think I'm going to try the Hunger Games now. It seems too many people talk about it :-)

  6. Love this! I especially love when mermaids have pointy or gill-like ears (I just did a mermaid piece, too...heehee)...

    The seaweed look of her top is great...and the lighting, truly magical :)
