This week's #FanArt comes to us from our uber-talented Toronto based Character Designer, Megan Leonard.
Megan's artwork is a tribute to the casting for the new live-action version of 'The Little Mermaid' starring Halle Bailey!
Megan: I truly believe that Halle Bailey will make the most amazing Ariel! I was inspired to add my contribution to the beautiful fan art many other artists have produced of Halle in character following some ignorant discussions online. I just wanted to join in celebrating this direction because simply put, Halle is gonna crush it. Wait and sea!
I drew Halle as Ariel using Procreate on my iPad Pro. I sketched the initial rough using the 6B Pencil and cleaned up the linework using the Technical Ink Pen.
Next, I painted using the Nikki Rull paint tool and refined final details with the 6B Pencil, Technical Ink Pen and Bonobo Chalk tools.
