Welcome to Mermay!

Never heard of Mermay? It’s an annual art challenge created by  animator Tom Bancroft (he has worked on several known animated movies, such as Tarzan, Mulan, The Lion King and many more). The challenge is to draw a mermaid every day in May. 

It mainly takes place on Instagram and the posts of the artists who have already joined can be found under the hashtags #mermay or #mermay2017

This is my first year doing the challenge and I want to share it with you! In addition to the official mermay prompts I have found some more and I’ll try and combine them as much as I can 🙂

I love doing art challenges! This way I have a prompt for every day and I just HAVE TO draw at least something. At the end of each monthly challenge I can see how much I’ve improved with this daily practice!

Here are the lists in case you’d like to join in 😉

Authors of the lists: @TomBancroft1    @jiko29    @miss.milia
