A crisp night sitting at the pier looks like it will pass uneventfully, until you catch a glimpse of light playing upon the water next to you, its surface rippling and warping like a mirror possessed. She moves unerringly closer to you before stopping nearby, returning your stare with an eyeless, curious gaze.
'Net was down for half the day so I couldn't work on commissions like I wanted to, so in trying to keep with the spirit of last month I ran with the first solid idea that came to me. I don't ever want to pass up an opportunity to practice water effects because there are only a handful of things out there as beautiful and otherworldly as the physics of water. I have all this awesome colored paper that I've barely used but I'm making efforts to do things with now. I had to make myself stop when it was finished otherwise I definitely would have overworked it. Remember that melusine I made for one of my Inktobers? Yeah, she decided to make another appearance.
Done with Staedtler pigment liners, colored pencils and white gel pen on Canson Mi Tientes colored paper. Character and art belongs to myself.
