For medium for the second week of April, long overdue, was gold leaf. It didn’t turn out how I wanted so have the original sketch, too.

piraticalpsyche:

even though my last edit got stolen (which is why this one features my url) i decided i wanted to make another
when i saw the reposted gif, with all those notes, i decided that i wanted to see what people had to say. and even though some of it was ignorant and hurtful and scarring, most of it was overwhelmingly positive. most of it came from people like me, starved for representation and so, so excited by the idea of something that they loved (disney or mermaids or both) having a character that looked like them, even if it wasnt real
there were also a lot of arguments about her race? she was supposed to be me, so she is multiracial, which leaves the door wide open. if you look and see you, you can see whatever you want

A couple of mermaid watercolor paintings I sold at WonderCon. All of them found new homes :)
