Won myself 2nd Place with my "Mermaid's Breakfast" drawing yesterday at Kustom Lane's "California Screamin' Downunder 2" Exhibition. That earns it the right to be sent over to Gasoline Gallery in LA for sale at their "California Screamin' 6" Exhibition.

Here is my working progress for this piece. From right to left. I started with the pencil rough, orange and grey lead. Then in the computer I did a bunch of quick color treatments. I decided on a palette. I then photocopied my pencil sketch up to A3 and transferred it to Watercolor paper (stretched on a board) with my variation on the tracing paper technique. I inkied up all the lineowork with a slighlty brown blue ink. Then using my watercolor I just used flood fill and voilà
OK, here's my finished piece for the...
