A Whimsical Mermaid in Markers by Andrea Melione


Start with a clean line drawing (erase all pencil, as the graphite will muddy your marker colors when you add them.









Now you can lay in your base coats. I have used Canary Yellow and Spanish orange.  Outline first, then fill in with color.









Now I add mid-tone color. I am using Spanish orange for the canary yellow mid- tone, and Orange as a mid-tone for the Spanish orange.



 Now I add the dark tones. Orange goes over Spanish orange mid-tone and Burnt Ochre goes over orange mid-tone.
Here I’ve added a Violet background, Light Violet for the wings, and Avocado for the seaweed.
 Here I’ve added a cyclone shape in the background for a school of fish, and detail on the wings
To the left is the finished ATC! I Added the school of fish and other highlights with a white gel pen. In addition, I re-inked the drawing with a pen - to make the line work bolder. Finishing touches were made with Stardust Pens (a Sakura product.)
