Edit ( May 09th 2017) : I just finished watching one of Aaron Blaise's Facebook Live Streams and the one thing that stuck with me is how insistent Aaron was with "quality over quantity" in terms of portfolio. I was pretty happy with this painting a few months back because it was the first illustration I managed from thumbnail to final all on my own. Looking back at it now all I see are mistakes (specially perspective with that bookcase). I have two options, don't add it to my portfolio or fix it. Thank you Aaron.
You can find Cameron Scott Davis' evil mermaid in the post since I tried following along every step of the way but coudn't keep up (I started to try to do it along with some personal decisions).
There's a time lapse (ultra sped up) of me drawing the Snowy Egret in the post, don't miss it!
I made this digital illustration because I really needed some ice cream after some (pretty close to being real) bad news. My site is hosted with Nominalia and on November 15 I woke up to a disaster. The whole story is in the post.
