a mermaid i drew nearly a year ago for alex’s monster girl gang zine! i had so much fun painting this, haha.
here’s a process gif:
Day 16: Ghost Girl
She makes her rounds in the less populated hours of the night. The patients who have returned from death can see and appreciate all the work she does around the hospital. She can’t move on until her son, who’s been in intensive care for years now, isn’t in need of her anymore.
It’s almost as if they don’t even feel the hospital’s budget cuts. Those still with a (morbid) sense of humor jokingly wish the boy never gets better.
I adore the story behind this one!
Moth and the Flame - 1938
This is what her melting skin would look like.
Day 28: I did it! I finished her. It’s half four in the morning and I have work in a few hours but she’s aliiiive!!
I’M GOING TO BED GOODNIGHT.
I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
I’m now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
