Subject and titleEdit
This is an entry in a "mermaid" contest at the Disney-Club at DeviantART. The purpose of the contest was to draw fan art of a Disney mermaid. Following is the description Scott listed on the artwork's DeviantART page:
I was torn between Ariel (Little Mermaid) and Syrena (Pirates of the Caribbean). Even though Ariel is one of my favorite Princesses (yes, I'm a grown man and I just admitted that), I couldn't pass up Syrena. The actress who plays her is just too friggin' hot. So here is my cartoony depiction of the scene in which the "bad guys" attempt to capture a mermaid at Whitecap Bay.
I worked on it over the course of a few days. I started with a pencil sketch of the overall composition. Then I went ahead and sketched out the characters, boat, net, and lighthouse. I went over the line work with ink and scanned everything into my computer. The digital coloring came next, and I pieced the images together and added some of the extra effects (light, water, etc). This is usually how my process works. Hours later, I was very pleased with the outcome.
So, yeah. This is essentially mixed media Disney fan art of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Syrena is the mermaid and the guys in the boat are (left to right) Scrum, Cabin Boy, Zombie Quartermaster, and Purser.
