The Little Mermaid: In Space

This project was done for my digital painting students to show how to create a painting with a story.

The mermaids have been preying on human ships for centuries, tearing them apart to find shiny things. One day the little mermaid came across an astronaut in an asteroid field, she had never seen one up close before. One look into the astronaut’s helmet and the Little mermaid instantly fell in love. In order to become one of the astronauts she went and spoke with the great space witch, ¬†placed her body into an iron maiden like spacesuit so that she may walk among the astronauts.
