Mermaids multimedia regular postage art (NSFW)

I made this to send in the mail to my mermaid and sea-loving friend affectionately called Seahorse. I was playing with mixed media and I wanted to send something in the mail with just a postage stamp so I said on facebook that the first person to reply to the post would get art sent in the mail. This is foldable so it can just be sent in a regular envelope.

Beautiful, look at all that texture!
What are you using for white outlining? I have never, ever found something good for that but I like the look enough to keep trying.

I’ve been using gel pens. It’s kind of hard to get it to stick but if it’s on the right paper it helps. That and pressing REALLY REALLY lightly. I made yet ANOTHER reproduction of my rainbow plague doctor in just colored pencil for someone and I had too hard of a time with the gel pen and eventually did the rest very quickly in acrylic paint.

The outside “braid” is the part that was painted on white. Lol.

It looks awesome but I can’t imagine my hands being steady enough to paint a thin white line all over the place like that. Good for you for making that work!

Lol trust me, mine are not very steady. I think I have carpal tunnel and anemia or something… I just do my best!

Gah! The style reminds me of a combination of ancient Greek, Japanese, and Chinese artworks.
