Michael Lanouilh
the mermaid


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
It was actually a creative challenge set for myself. I've been going more towards painting lately in my work than line drawing, so it was a way to explore texture painting further. The idea was to work on mutation and new myths after the apocalypse, using the myth of the mermaid with a little monstrous twist.

How was the illustration used:
it's gonna be part of a fanzine created by the French group of artists "groupe vengeance". The theme of the next issue being after the apocalypse.

How did you make this work:
Using digital painting only.
