In celebration of "Mermay" and all those that I've seen posting their own on social media, it seemed I should give one livestream dedicated to just that! So let's take this mermaid sketch below and I'll demonstrate some shading and material studies incorporated into this fun concept. So jump in and watch our mermaid come alive!

Oh dear, you are an amazing teacher btw ! 

I want to ask for something from you though. I'm really sure you will have a ton of views and favs , could you Please make a nice tutorial about how to draw stone/rocks? Close range ones i mean... how to properly make the structure and lines and lighting and darkness... 
I bet you would produce an incredible tutorial related to this.

Wish you an awesome week and weekend !

Have you tried using Coreldraw? Which is better Coreldraw or Adobe Illustrator? I'm in love with your tutorials they're all clear and very aesthetically pleasing.
