Catching onto this “Mermay” thing a little late, but who’s really keeping track? I actually started off doodling a lot of little things, then it kind of sprouted into… Whatever it is now. I learned from the KNKL series about “battling the blank canvas” and instead of trying to make a good, detailed drawing, you should instead draw very small motifs. When I say motif, I mean you’re mostly working on the shape or the silhouette. At first, I was just drawing random shapes and creatures, which was actually quite fun. When I remembered about the “Mermay” thing though, I switched gears to drawing a bunch of small mermaids, which changed into making it a fully colored picture.
I should figure out print sizes.
