Practice sketches: The Little Mermaid

Before may flies by, and before my (quite literally) fishy wave of inspiration ends, here’s a practice drawing of Ariel, The Little Mermaid! (Get it? Mer-may? )

Anyway, you may have noticed that I hardly ever draw faces, and to be completely honest, that’s cause I’m super duper bad at it! Well, what I mean is that it takes a long time before I’m perfectly happy with how it turns out. Sometimes the eyes look off or the lips (lips are the hardest imo) are too thick or the nose is just misshapen… Faces are really hard because every line has to be super precise.

But hey, practice makes perfect right? I’ve never been more sure of the 10,000 hour rule guys. Practice practice practice!


Here’s what I was working on prior to drawing Ariel!
