Patterns: Initial sketch

I ventured the fairytale of “the little mermaid” not wanting to limit myself with the storyline but instead to focus on how it made me feel and to explore on that emotion instead.

With the quote “A sigh was the only sign of her deep distress, for a mermaid cannot cry.” I played with how eyes were used as motifs and also the incorporation of a skeletal mermaid instead of a “live” to heighten the emotion of grief and betrayal.

More exploration on how the mermaid could look like.

Going into the gaining but losing herself all for a pair of legs, I had fun creating this vectorized legs but I did not use them in the end.
