I’ve started the mermaid special characters with an ampersand. The & seems like a good start in this series. Mine was originally drawn backwards. So I can fix the digital version that I will make next, but the actual drawing is going to remain wrong.
I did a few filters with PicsArt app and made a GIF. My favorite version is above. I’ll be working on a digital version soon. I start by drawing on top of the photo on my iPad with the pencil in Adobe draw.
