I finally completed this artwork that has been over a year in the making. The initial idea came from my daughter asking me, “Mom, don’t you sometimes wish you had eight arms?”
Yes, yes, I do sometimes wish that. This concept of me having eight arms further evolved into Mother Ursula due to my childhood love of The Little Mermaid. However, Ursula is seen here balancing the challenges and pressures of modern motherhood.
For my first sustained, detailed digital illustration, I am pleased. More of this media to come.
