The Husband has been reading a lot of Slavic mythology lately (he has Ukrainian ancestry but a lot of the family history was lost after his grandfather was released from a prisoner of war camp after World War II and migrated to Australia, and so The Husband’s been tapping into his cultural heritage through studying traditional mythology, which I think is super awesome), and noticed a lot of mermaid themes. He asked if I could draw a mermaid riding a seahorse, and this is what I came up with. It was just a quick sketch but I was really happy with how it turned out. To clarify, though, this mermaid is not one that I have drawn based on Slavic myth!
I’ve got some products featuring this drawing over at my RedBubble store.
Scenes from my sketch books and digital art experiments in June and July 2016.
