I recently watched a Polish movie called THE LURE. It is a musical/horror/darkthriller movie which I feel will be a cult classic in the future. After watching it, I was fascinated with the idea of seduction and how mermaids use their voices to hypnotise their listeners. I also wanted to tell a story of unrequited love. Do you see it?
My redesign of Ariel from my first ever film that I watched, Disney’s The Little MermaidI wanted her to wear loose and draped clothing because I imagine it would look like a floating spectacle underwater as she floats and swims, almost like a jelly fish. Her clothing is held together by her shells. Staying true to the colours of Ariel, I decided to use the pink she wears when she has dinner with Prince Eric as the main colour of the fabric. She wears flowers and coral in her hair.
In 2015 I redesigned fifty something characters from popular media, can you name all these characters!? It’s really helped with my technique and got me more comfortable with using ink.#GloryOfDessa book one is now available to purchase at WWW.GLORYOFDESSA.COM also available at orbital comics in Leicester Square! 130 pages drawn, coloured and written by yours truly!!
During Halloween week, I was inspired by all the creative designs i’ve seen so I decided to design a few monsters for you!
The mermaid from the deep sea whose curiosity for humans and the world up above crosses the line of obsessive. From afar her voice resonates with the souls of whoever hear it, knowing this she lures people towards her so that she can study them, inside and out.
