I’m going to participate, at least partially, in MerMay. I’m not great at remembering to sketch and post each day, but I think I can commit to a weekly schedule of mermay art. I’ll try!
To kick off the festivities I spend this lovely May day morning sculpting a chunky merman. Once he has been fired & glazed he will live in my garden. I love him 💕
I think mer-people should be fat. I mean, if they’re mammals (which to me is implied by the presence of boobs lol) then they need some fat to keep warm underwater, right? That’s what I’m going with. Also there aren’t enough chunky creatures out there, in my opinion.
I also gave him a tiny butt crack, because why not.
He’s still super rough but I think he has a lot of potential.
Happy MerMay! 🌈

Update! He’s been glazed and fired. And I made him a merman magazine to read. I added some silver leaf to his hair, just for the fun sparkle.
