K-2SO, Gamora, and More Become Mermaids for MerMay

If you follow any artists on social media, you probably notice they commit to drawing challenges every so often. There’s Inktober in October, and May has something really special: MerMay! Started by animator Tom Bancroft, the MerMay challenge is all about drawing a mermaid every day in May. Artists go underwater with original characters and characters from pop culture. This week’s Fan Art Friday is all about the latter.

Let’s start with a closer look at Rogue One‘s K-2SO:

Do you create any sort of fan art? If so, I want to see it. Whether you focus on a specific fandom or pull inspiration from multiple stories and mediums, I’d like to highlight what you do.
