The Shipwrecker by KmyeChan The Shipwrecker by KmyeChan

A tempest is just a mermaid's bad hair day.

I have been working on this piece on and off since summer. At one point I got so frustrated with it that I thought I would never get around to finish it. Hopefully it was all worth it...!
I am trying to achieve an aspect closer to oil painting (while still working in my usual marker/ink/pencil combination). I quite like it, time-consuming as it is. :)

Hope you like it!

PS: closer shots can be seen on my Tumblr, and you can see a part of the process here in time-lapse video:

I love your use to muted colors in this piece, especially with markers. It breaks the mold of markers = bright colors.

Wow, so beautiful! I've always imagined the power of the sea as it's beauty. This made me think of the Tempest by Shakespeare, even before I looked at the description.

Thank you! I wasn't thinking of The Tempest when drawing this, but you are right, it is very fitting!
