Mermaid on Purple by Zygamora Mermaid on Purple by Zygamora
This is my entry for the Mythical Creature Challenge.

This was created as a vector using Inkscape. I've changed the colour scheme to suite the purple shirt better. The link for the original is here [link]

I used only 5 colours even though it looks like I used 6. My trick was to cut holes in the design/image so the colour of the T-shirt would show through.

When I was creating it I use a background that was the same colour as the t-shirt I originally designed it for. This way I could see what the image would look like on the colour with shapes cut out.

I like how fluid this design is, it works well with the whole mermaid concept. The colors are very pretty too! (^^)

Thanks. :w00t:
I was very pleased how this turned out. It was originally designed on the Blue shirt and I changed the colours to go well on the Purple shirt. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be the fav of my design entries in this challenge with DeviantArt members. It's hard to really tell when you have no idea how many votes the designs are getting. :D

Yeah, it's pretty weird that you can't see the votes, or the top 100 entries for that matter. But I suppose the main thing about these challenges is working to improve yourself; you get to see how other people approach a certain theme, so that's a start.
Anyway, good luck. (:
