She looks awesome! Can't wait to see her colored and that tutorial sounds keen!
So I finally got my Best of She-Ra DVD last night and I had to draw Mermista. That, and someone on the boards emailed me a while back asking me to draw one but I never got around to it. I'm doing this as part of a tutorial for some friends of mine who wanted to know how I go about creating my artwork. In reality, this is actually step 3. I'll post the tutorial on my Deviant Art account as soon as I finish this. Hope you like!
Your Mermista is gorgeous! I love her innocent eyes... she looks so much the way her voice sounds in the toon, innocent and loyal! I love it!
thanks, i've been experimenting with expressions and personalities lately.Originally Posted by LupaLuna

Welcome back to the fan art boards Mista! Love the drawing, I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
Super cool MJ!
I really enjoy your style, and this piece is starting off exceptionally SWEET!
Can't wait to see more!
I think it's looking very good. There is only one small thing you might want to consider changing: there is a line extending from the smallest finger of her right hand onto the back of her hand that doesn't look quite right. Otherwise, it looks nearly flawless.
Will we see it coloured?

Thanks EVERYONE!!! Actually, I did start to color it over the weekend until my computer starting acting funny...guess the more I learn and am able to do, my computer just can't handle. It'll be finished soon.
I soooo can't wait for this to be finished! she has such a ... human... quality to her eyes. that sounds stupid I'm sure, but I wish I had your skills!!!
thanks for sharing!
Just an update for those of you following this monster of a fan art piece. I probably won't finish it today so I'll show you all where I am with it as of now. Too many hours have gone into doing this piece..
That's quite sweet but man, ya gotta do something about her fingers!
How big are her baby fingers??

haha, sorry. i usually draw "very" cartoony so when I do people, proportions are usually always off. this edit might be a little better.Originally Posted by Pig Boy

That is an awesome drawing.
Mermista was one favorite She-Ra characters after She-Ra and Frosta of course.
That turned out really nice. Have you ever tried putting color in your lines (instead of black and white)?
