If you liked my Oddball Mermaid scene on dark blue last week, I’ve got another one for you today, along with a video!
Oddball Fish Pencil Card
As with my Oddball Mermaid scene, I opted to stamp and colour on blue so I wouldn’t have to colour the background. The blue cardstock I used is just some random card I found in a drawer – smooth but with a little “tooth”.
Watch me colour this scene in the video below. Don’t worry, I don’t make you sit through me colouring every single fish – just one and the background details! If you enjoy watching please do like the video and subscribe over on my YouTube channel.
Caran D’Ache Luminance Pencils Used:
Eyeballs/Bubbles: French Grey, Ultramarine Violet, French Grey 10%, White (Black to put the pupil back in and retrace lines). Body: Burnt Sienna, Cornelian, Orange, Apricot
That’s it for today! Hope you feel inspired to go and get colourful.
I’ve been meaning to put a scene together with Oddball Mermaid for a while. I knew I wanted to colour her using coloured pencils, but I was feeling a little lazy. Thankfully I had an aha moment when I saw some blue card in my drawer. Just a hint of pencil along the line of the sandy ocean floor, and it gives it enough life without inducing serious hand cramp!
