We love mermaids around here, and since it’s MerMay, we thought it might be fun to do a little contest 😀 Post your best Merthing and at the end of the month, we'll select a winner. There will be prizes!
What is MerMay?
It's a fun art challenge started by pro animator Tom Bancroft. The goal is to draw a mermaid every day in the month of May. There is even an official drawing prompt if you need a little help coming up with 31 different mermaids. Check out Tom's Instagram for inspiration!
It can be a maid, or a man, or whatever floats your boat really. It just has to be Mer.
Post your best MerThing in the SVS Forum (if you don't already have a user account for the forum, you will need to create one). Look for the thread titled NEW MONTHLY CONTEST!! MERMAIDS! (MERMEN!)
