A Mermaid for All Seasons

I love the change of seasons: winter blooming into spring, summer mellowing into autumn. I can only assume that mermaids enjoy watching the seasons change as much as I do. Things are a bit different in their world, of course: golden kelp stands in for golden leaves, tiny pink anenomes make underwater blossom trees, obliging seals serve as muffs and hoods in winter. Won't you join my mermaid friends in celebrating the seasons under the sea?

Here are the character sketches I started with:

And here are the fine sketches, with background elements in place...

And the finals!

If you'd like to bring home some mermaids of your very own, prints are available on my Etsy shop!

I bought a set of all four seasons as a housewarming gift (for the model of Autumn Mermaid). She is delighted! Thanks Casey for making your art available.

I saw these in the Barton gallery back in February. They're even more beautiful in person!

Kepp up the good work; we're expecting more great things from you in the future Casey Robin!
