Aurora Wings New Release Double Showcase April

I'm especially thrilled today to be joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team for the Double New Release Showcase of a beautiful new mermaid (that I actually named) and the new Summer Sprite based on a baby version of her.  Meet Marisol the Mermaid. I'm so proud!  You can read all about how and why her name was chosen in the Showcase post and as Marisol's Fairy Godmother I received her full body version before she was released to the public.

Here's a closeup of Marisol in all her glory.  She's colored with Copics and I've used clear Wink of Stella to make her scales shine.  You can find her in both shops in the links below.

My original plan for her was much simpler as I'd done a Brushos background on watercolor paper I thought would work, but after coloring, it just wasn't right.  Fortunately I'd checked in on The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch this morning and after perusing my Graphic 45 papers, I went to town.  This isn't the first time their sketch saved my butt and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last.  YAY!

And I did say this was a DOUBLE release, didn't I?  Just look at this new little cutie.  Sweet Summer Sprite with Watermelon.  She is as precious as can be!  Unfortunately I'm still battling the cold I caught on my trip and was unable to color her up but you can see wonderful inspiration from the Showcase Team in the Showcase post.  You can find her in both shops below.
