Sunday Sketch: mermaid sketch

sketches (click on the image for a larger view)
almost finished drawing
I don't have a title for this piece but I've been calling it 'mermaid post'. This is for the Creative Tuesday's theme 'bubble gum machine' but I don't think that fits it now. For more Sunday Sketches, go here.


  1. I love this idea. Just imagine if this were real, and the mermaid looked around at her treasures, and chose one to drop in the chute for you.

  2. what a great idea for a sketch. Even if I think it is crowded in there :)

  3. So cute, you know I love mermaids :) It's almost like a Sea-Globe instead of a Snow Globe.

  4. super fun!
    love all the details.
    If yours doesn't fit, then mine won't fit ;-)
    I think the spaceman one on his pinterest board makes both of ours fine.

  5. I like this idea of a mermaid in a bubble! Nice work Lissa!

  6. lovely mermaid illustration surrounded by her sweet sea creatures ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy and Peaceful week ahead ~ ^_^

  7. What a wonderful and creative idea! Nicely done.

  8. That's really cool. I love that her whole world is contained in the gumball machine! Happy Sunday Sketches, hope you have a lovely week!

  9. Very intriguing....as if the mermaid were trapped inside a fish bowl

  10. Really awesome work, Lissa. Your finished piece in color is absolutely stunning! :)

  11. As I'm a big fan of snail mail, I love the mermaid post!
