29 Faces, Face 3, Gothic Mermaid Big Eye Sketch + Blue Landscape Waterfall Website Update...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  For today, I took the one (sketch 3) I felt needed the most improvement and with the input of Alex of The Darker Side of Passion I did a second sketch of her.  I think she has a more serious quality now and although I thought her something else before, I've now changed my mind.  I think she is most likely a mermaid of the deep blue sea, although she could also be an angel fairy or a goddess.  These possibilities are rarely set in stone for me when just sketching faces that appeal to me...  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.  

She is face 6 for 29 faces in September.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of September. 


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

I really like all of your "gothic maiden" sketches. You are very talented with a pencil. Your maidens all have such expressive eyes. Makes you wonder what they my be up to... :-)

Blue Vista influenced me so much that I saw your sketch as the goddess of water!
