Mermaid & Mermen Challenge

This is my submimsion for the Character Design Challenge for May. The theme was Mermaids & Mermen. This young mermaid came across a little trouble as she explored a dark trench.
My usual process starts with a paper sketch.  Then I scan it and add color in Illustrator or Photoshop.  However, this illustration was all digital.  I did this entirely with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. I used an app called Procreate.  I can't say enough good things about it.  I learned that it is possible to do finished work on an iPad Pro.  This new tool has eliminated a few steps and increased my speed.
