Daily Deviation

Given 2013-03-11
To an artist anything can be a tool, in this case it's a dry erase board and markers. Mermaids by ~Cheape is just one of many amazing dry erase pieces in this talented artists gallery. ( Suggested by OceanAtEndofTheLane and Featured by Astralseed )

:+fav: Congratulations on the DD. You did a wonderful job here. I agree with you, too. Mermaids and their ilk (thinking Sirens here) can be "jerks" that lead many a ship to grief. Another meaning to "on the rocks" for the poor sailors. Thank you.

Absolutely amazing :)

Out of curiosity, how long did it take you to do this?
Reply

Cheape Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Thanks! I don't keep track, or do anything all at once, but probably 5 or 6 hours altogether. Good markers make a huge difference. Woulda taken 12 with Expo.

You're welcome! I did some doodling in math class when we'd use dry-erase boards but absolutely nothing compared to this! :O

Congrats on the DD :dalove:
This is amazing. I find it odd that the mermaid's arm and the ship are the only two "gray" things among the black and white, but it doesn't really take away from the careful, still beauty of the drawing.
Great job! :happybounce:

Thanks! The thing is, I did these things pretty casually. The hull I wanted a highlight on at the bow to describe the bend of the wood. The arm I just got lazy.
Cheers!

Dry erase??? Please tell me you were able to preserve this without smudging! <3

It lasted one day finished and one of my clients put a finger <squee> right through the hull. No big. They all get erased anyhow.
