Ocean Life

Ocean Life by Sarrah Wilkinson - This is my digital illustration of a lovely gold and blue finned mermaid swimming underwater with her octopus friend.

It's almost a joke at this point that whenever I try to draw a mermaid, she ends up being non-traditional in some way... from mers with dolphin tails or fish-like faces, to "gorilla whales", or even the extreme example where a drawing I first envisioned to be a mermaid ended up being a rattlesnake naga living in the middle of a desert.

So, I figured it was about time to add an honest-to-goodness fish-tailed mermaid lady to my collection. I colored her in a striking blue and gold motif, in vivid colors as befits a fancy ocean mermaid. Her hair is also a lovely deep blue shade. Here, she's swimming with a friend, a rusty red colored octopus. I'm a huge fan of cephalopods, and it's kind of sad I didn't have one included in any of my artwork up to now! Ah well, problem solved. :)
