The Little Mermaid lineart by Zephyri The Little Mermaid lineart by Zephyri
The finished linework for the Little Mermaid piece. Just need to get it transferred to the board and paint it now!

If anyone wants to take this and colour it themselves, by all means be my guest, as long as there is some link back to myself or the original linework, it's all good. Apologies it's not all that hi res, though, I hadn't realised it was so lo res until I'd practically put it all together, and the idea of doing it all again didn't appeal.

Both figures are traditional pencil sketches and the nouveau border is my own design, but done digitally in illustrator.

Many, many thanks for those wonderful lines. They helped me a lot when work really got me down. I worked the evenings on the colouring of your great lines. Hope you like the outcome:…

Aw, glad they made you a little happier. She has such a lovely traditional anime feel to her, particularly like the shiny hair!
