Tiny Mermaid by SosinSoup Tiny Mermaid by SosinSoup
Edit: Okay, seeing how it's gotten really popular, I took it upon myself to fix up the sketch and put this one out instead. Hm. I don't know why but I feel like I like the sketch so much more, but I've spent like 2 days on this so it should see the light. Enjoy!

Oh wow this thing is huge, download if you wanna blind your eyes by super sketchiness.

But yup, I never have time to draw anymore, now considering I'm actually working )-: I just lose the energy to draw. But I found a picture on Tumblr a few days ago and thought Wow, this would be great if instead of baby catfish, why not use a tiny mermaid. And boy, is she tiny! She's freaked out though, so yeah, I'm happy with her facial expression. She was suppose to be all black, but it looked too plain. I found on google an image (for some reason it was called "evil tiny fish" :shrug: ) and thought the design was cool enough to use on the mermaid!

Don't mind the human, tiny mermaid, he's just not sure if he's really seeing a mermaid or not. This will be probably the last picture I draw before I crawl into bed and join my family to a never ending day of work Dx At least now I know prices to most beer <3

Mermaid and beach guy belong to me
Sorry for sloppiness.

It should, when you click Submit Art, there should be a "Enter Words" or something along those lines and then you can submit it that way ^^

O____O I would be just as terrified if I were in her shoes... er, fins? ... >.>

Her design is VERY cool, and I like how you colored her so that you made her fins transparent. It's like I'm getting anxious myself looking at her expression and how she's tugging at her hair. D:

I really love your eye to detail! When one looks at something they can't quite believe, ones mouth is open in a 'durrh' manner just like this guy. I'm also quite fond of the dark rings around the mermaid's eyes, the lines and shaded eyes makes for a very realistic fear. It's not always eyes so round/huge they might pop out of their sockets! Seeing how large the water droplets are on her is like the berry on top of the cream! Gorgeous work! ^___^

Aw! :hug: Then I'll have to do this as a story. ^w^ (Or attempt, I'm not that great of a writer. ^^;)

I still have to do something for 'Hug a Tiny Day' (although I'm late again. x.x), so maybe I can fit this in somehow. :plotting:

man, I didn't even know that there were 2 holidays relating the GT, I thought there was just Hug a giant day, for last month, not one for this month and a tiny day too Dx

I bet you're a better writer than me, oh wait, you are a better writer xD
