It will be necessary for a lesson for us:
1. Sheet of dense and rough A3 paper.
2. Colored pencils, the author uses Faber castell.
3. Simple pencil
4. Klyachka (eraser)
5. It is a lot of patience.
Photo of fish whom now we should draw.
I transfer drawing to a sheet of paper, I erase the klyachky line of construction. If on paper there is a simple pencil — not the fact that it can be blocked colored pencils, it is better to leave hardly visible silhouette.
At once I choose some pencils for the main tone of scales, an eye, fins, etc. Blue and bluish colors will prevail.
Step 2. I begin work with an eye of fish. I apply with layers tone on a pupil, I leave a patch of light, I study area round an eye.
In the same way I arrive and with the second eye. I begin work it is necessary a mouth of a makropod, I shade area round it. Each layer will give more saturation to this or that site. It is better "to mix" layers of pencils constantly. For example, after blue "layer" to walk greenish or violet. It will give to work more picturesque and realistic look.
Step 3. I continue work on the head of a small fish. Now I add brownish shades at future edges of scales.
It is possible to pass to a portrayal of gills. Now are added to violet and bluish shades red, red and green. Surely in advance consider where the lit places because it is rather difficult to correct colored pencils will settle down.
Step 4. Now it is possible to be engaged in a body of a makropod. I put the first layer. On a referensa this part of a small fish is rather indistinct, I did not begin to achieve just the same effect, but also did not begin to allocate strongly according to plan.
I put the second layer, with addition of minor flowers — okhristy, green, emerald, darkly blue. We do not forget about shadows and light.
Step 5. Fins. I trace plavnikovy "stones", it is important to give a "brilliant" look — to leave more light places and patches of light, after all they not only reflect light, but also are a little transparent.
I apply tone on that part of a fin behind which there is a body of a small fish. It is necessary to try to transfer transparency of a fin.
Here is how it looks at this stage:
Step 6. Final stage. It was necessary to draw a tail and, the lower and top fins, than we also will be engaged. Same equipment.
I wanted to leave it in such look, without background portrayal. But I told myself what to study the background needs to be drawn. Therefore tried to represent a certain similarity of an aquarium with seaweed.
So, the finished work:
