Secret Stash by ChristyTortland Secret Stash by ChristyTortland
Entry for the Dr. Pepper mural contest.

I decided to really go imaginary with this one and create one of my childhood dreams of being a mermaid. I used to have underwater tea parties - I drew inspiration from that.

Digitally painted with PS5.

I just had this wild idea for a commercial. Two fishermen in a boat. Under the boat a pair of obviously female hands tie the respective hooks together then tugs. Upside the fishermen, excited, try to reel in their "catches." They don't notice the female's hand reaching into the cooler and swiping a bottle of Dr. Pepper. The fishermen reel themselves overboard. Under the water they see a mermaid swimming away. Cut to the surface where said mermaid's head pops out of the water. She opens the bottle and takes a swig. She smiles, waves bye-bye, and sinks back into the water.

You should win for being completely out-of-the-box with your entry. The colors are really nice and textures as well.
