iPad Drawings: Mermaids

I made these drawings recently on my iPad with a Pogo sketch stylus pro and the Brushes app. It was even better than I had expected. I could zoom out for the tiny thumbnail I like to make before sketching something. I then zoomed in, made a new layer and made a tighter sketch over it. And then more layers for more embellishments. It makes sketching in color much more portable and accessible for me. I still like  working by hand with tangible things like ink, paper and watercolor better but lack of space to do that at this time makes this a great alternative.

As for the mermaid subject matter...I really love swimming and drawing mermaids is much more interesting than drawing swimmers.

  1. Yay! These are really cute....congrats on the new ipad, I think you'll come to enjoy sketching digitally almost as much as with a pencil. Nothing will ever completely replace the feel of drawing by hand though.
