MerMay may be over, but there’s always next year’s competition to plan for. Manga/comic artist and creator of Maiden in Disguise, Bitsy Tandem, made this video on how to draw chibi mermaids and highlights her process in making these cuties in the hopes that it helps beginners to develop their own style.
Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word describing something short (like a person or animal). It comes from the verb 禿びる (chibiru), which means ‘to wear out and become shorter’. Bitsy has been commissioned by many people to create chibi caricature portraits.
