Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers Landscape

Hiya! It's been quite a while since I've managed to pop over here to my website, which is a shame because I do love it so. I've still been active on Insta and YouTube so I hope you've been following me there.

Today I decided to take a break from my colouring books and work on actual art I drew myself. My friend Monica gifted me a set of the Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers by American Crafts and I thought it'd be a great opportunity to try them out. Here's the result. I hope you like it! I have you tried them yourself? What did you think?

I've said it before, but the things that look the easiest and simplest are often the hardest. Minimalism, transparency, it's all hard to grasp for someone used to bold, vibrant Copic work, I'll tell you that much. I'm use to just hitting you in the face with colour and that impulse is hard to curb unfortunately. This was supposed to be a lot more subtle but... yeah. BOOM!

By the time it got to colouring I didn't feel well so I copped out with just two little meerkats. They're super cute though, so I like it.

World Watercolour Month and Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge: July 28th

I spent the morning watching videos by Malukah and one of them is full of cinematics from the early days of Elder Scrolls Online. It has this shot, rising above Dhalmora because back then all they had was baby zones done. Anyway, it's really pretty, despite the blur from the draw distance issues. I went there and took a picture as close as I could get (since I don't have magical camera control - it was also at night), this is what it looks like.
Yeah, see all the detail? See all the fancy?! I just... it's super hard to render in watercolour for *me* because I suck. Anyway, I was gonna just scrap the thing, but I tried again and came up with the picture above. Not great, not even good, but Mike says he likes it so... yeah. It counts.

Not technically accurate, but if you fake pleats well enough they look like they're correct, lol!
