Surfer Girl by B1nd1 Surfer Girl by B1nd1
Loves to surf and hang out with her merman buddy!

His design kinda sucks but I think the girl's design is nice.

His hair and tail have matching yellow highlights. That's gotta be worth something.

The girl's design is, again, adorable, she seems cheerful and relatable : ] That's definitely helped by her figure and other cute details (those thick eyebrows! <3)

Woah, this is like a dream I had about a woman who lived in Mexico and was a surfer, who met a merman while surfing one day. They fell in love and he turned her into a mermaid.

That chic almost looks like her.

I think the mermans design reminds me of a dolphin fish, also, very cool tecnique of using layers to make it feel as if their feet (or tail) were underwater.

How did you manage that?

Very cool! I love your character style. You're very talented for only being 18!

Did you do your vector work in Flash or Illustrator? I do all mine in Flash and then add any additional stuff in Photoshop. I just like to compare workstyles with people and see how others do their work.

Thanks for the compliments! This isn't vector, it's all done with the paintbrush tool and lasso tool in photoshop and then smoothed down with the eraser. I tried to get into using illustrator but I can never figure that program out!

:iconguardianrandylimoges:
Ohhhhh. Cool deal! Whatever works for ya. :) Yeah. Illustrator's so tricky. I can achieve the same effect in Flash with a lot less frustration. Though there are a few really cool things it can do that I was taught while working in it on the music video. So irritating to have to do backgrounds in that when I could've done them like 5 times faster in flash. Oh well. Haha. But, yes, keep up the good work!

I think the design is simple but cute. I like the merman, that's rather unique.

Love the seagull on his head.

For some weird reason I'm thinking of that Beach Boys song, but it never talked about merman or seagulls.

Absolutely love your stuff, but these, particularly the girl, seem to be a bit too static and fashion-platey. She lacks the fun, risky energy of some of your other drawings. I think it's her posture.

Other than that, it's very good.

I love them both! Perhaps the merman should have a surfer like tribal tattoo or some kind of hawaiian type tribal marking on his upper half somewhere. maybe that'll give a bit more to his character. Personally i like him as is. just figured i'd try and help<3 Anywho, another magical drawing! Can't wait to see more of your work. =D
