Oh stop it, you!
Please, do not use this image in any way!
Here’s a really tiny preview of my master’s project to show you that I am, indeed, working on it. I’m designing characters for a made-up video game and this lady is one of them. More info as soon as I get my degree, which will hopefully happen soon :)
exoticqueen18 said: Omg! I love your Bachelor Project! Its literally so beautiful and I actually cried a bit cause I would like to own a book like that but in spanish or english. Keep drawing beautiful, you're an inspiration. Btw... Who is Moana and which movie?
Aww, thank you so very much!
Moana is an upcoming Disney movie. It is said to be released in 2018 and so far we know very little of it. It’s supposed to be a 3D animated musical with Moana Waialiki as the main character. She’s the only daughter of a chief and a sea voyaging enthusiast and she sets on an adventure with demi-gods and spirits from traditional Polynesian culture. It all takes place a long long time ago.
And I can’t wait :D

Anonymous said: Hi! I love the mermaid piece! Question though, how does she have a working iPhone? (Perhaps someone lost it?)
Oh my, okay… When I was drawing this I wasn’t thinking about the technical problems at all. I don’t know a thing about iPhones so I guess I was kind of sure that cool phones like that would be waterproof, because reasons.
Anyway, when people started questioning this I made up this little story, where the lost phone just drops near the mermaid and she’s all like ‘What is that?”. She takes it, the screen flickers a couple of times and dies. So you can say the drawing just catches them in the middle of all this happening.
But thanks for liking the artwork even though it lacks some logic :)
A short animation I created last year and totally forgot about.

I’m truly glad to read that so many people like this particular artwork, but at the same time I’m kind of embarrassed for being thanked for drawing it, especially since my previous art hasn’t been as diverse as I wish it was. Diversity in general should be this basic thing in all kind of media and it’s really heartbreaking to know that it doesn’t work that way. I will definitely do my best to create a wide range of different characters in the future :)
gnomedraws said: Hi there. I was wondering where your Tumblr name comes from? I'm a lover of frogs and that could be why I ended up directed to your art.
When I was creating my DeviantART account 8 years ago I had an unhealthy obsession with frogs (still love them) and came up with my LittleGreenFrog nickname. It’s been quite some but I still like it and I try to keep my other accounts frog-themed 🐸
wsbuckybarnes said: Hi! This is really random and I'm sorry to bother with such a silly thing hah but I was assigned to do some concept art for an aquarium and I have been having so much trouble drawing coral and then I saw your piece reblogged by someone else which is a huge coincidence but I was wondering if you had any tips or good resources you found for referencing? It's okay if you don't, I just thought it would be good to ask for advice since you drew it pretty well (:
I wish I could give you some kind of awesome trick that would help you instantly but I don’t really have anything like that myself. I just looked for some underwater sceneries on Google and screencaps from The Little Mermaid. I studied the shapes, colours and compositions and tried to draw something similar. Sorry, I really wish I could be of more help.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You can’t even imagine how happy I am to read this! It’s so great to know that the silly things I love doing give joy to others as well.
