EDIT: Decided to sell this after all, the original and prints of it are available here.
A mixed media painting; a watercolor background and Copic marker Whales with black multiliner and white gelpen for the highlights.
I used about a dozen different reference images, for the whales and for various details such as the eyes. I decided to use watercolor for the background because it would cost me a bit too much marker ink
And I used several different colored Copics on the background to smooth things out, I remember Cool Shadow and the Blender but there were others as well
Time taken: about 6 hours give or take. The background took up most time.
Watercolors and Copic markers on A4 Bristol board.
Mixed feelings about this one, the watercolor could have been so much better... Oh well, just a reason to keep practising. I might redo this soon and then use watercolor paper instead of the Bristol.
Whales turned very well, really pleased with them. And large-scale whales are much easier and faster to color than sketchcard sized whales, much less fiddly
What do you think of my new signature/watermark? This also has an almost invisible watermark as well. Which I think is better than the obtrusive dA watermark
