HDH094 - Menacing Mermaids

Haunted Design House - Menacing Mermaids

This week you are to make something wicked using the terrifying temptresses from the formidable and foul fathoms as your inspiration. These are not the mermaids that hung on your Grandma's bathroom wall. Let's see something scary!!

Anyway I decided to paint one and for once I am quite pleased with how she turned out.  She is quite evil and is sad because she hasn't caused the kind of mayhem she had hoped (poor little ickle thing!).

I know my pics are terrible really try but am a total duffus!

Above is merbiatch before she had scales added.  She was painted using acrylics and I painted her on hardboard (I prefer hardboard it to canvas as I can rectify mistakes of which I make many, plus find it easier to shade, even on something as simple as this there were and are lots and lots of mistakes).

Anyway hopefully you guys will play along this week and come up with some pretty cool stuff.

I am on holiday this week so hope you all have fun and will get commenting when I get back.
