do you use water colours?

NasikaSakura Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2015  Professional General Artist
I have used them before and I am currently taking an official course on watercolors, but I didn't use any in this picture. :)

Ahh ok. What did you use to paint this?
Reply
:iconnasikasakura:
NasikaSakura Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2015  Professional General Artist
It's mostly just colored pencils. ^^;
You can watch how I made it in the Speed art video linked to in the description. :)
There is a little bit of acrylic paint that I used for the water mist, but that's it.

it looks awesome! I wish I could colour as neatly as you with pencils. And make it look fine enough to seem like watercolours were used ; w ;

I honestly don't know why people like this one so much over my other art. XD I'm never satisfied with it, except I do like the mermaid's design. :meow: And yes, that is choral in her hair. :D

hmm, not sure for others, but I think for me the overall 'hue' of the image grabbed my eye and kept it longer than other thumbnails next to it (on your main page poll). I thought maybe it was the 'vibrant' colours in the tail at first but comparing again I definitely see similarly vibrant colours in other images you've done. The overall 'hue' to this one though has an almost sunset/hazy warm/relaxing feel to it as opposed to what I think is a more 'cool' tone in some of the other pieces in the poll. The warmth drew me in to click this picture first ^^

NasikaSakura Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Professional General Artist
Huh. Yeah, I don't often do sunset pieces, and my art has been getting darker lately. ^^; So I guess it makes sense that this one stands out then. Thank you so much for your input! :D

I like the cheering sailors the best here! The rest of the image is obviously very good as well, but the sailors somehow catch my eye most, probably because their body language is so well readable? :)
Reply
:iconnasikasakura:
NasikaSakura Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014  Professional General Artist
Oh, I'm very glad then. :D
I tried to make their body language speak for them instead of using little details like faces since those would take forever to draw and you wouldn't see them that distance anyway. :)
I never would have thought someone would like them so much though-- they seem so simple to me. :blush: Thank you!

I'd say you succeeded very well! And body language is sometimes even more important than facial expressions. So all praise is totally deserved! :D

Does the sea foam really look real? ;u; YAY!
I worked very hard to figure out what colors to use, but I never felt satisfied with them. I'm gad it is liked though. ;u;

didn't get a chance to comment on this before, but can I just say, this is one of my favourite pieces from your gallery??
the rainbow fins on the mermaid look lovely, and that sea spray just pulls the whole thing together.

D: Really?! Wow! I am shocked!
I was worried that, despite how hard I worked on it, it didn't match up to par with my other art. ;u; I'm glad it's so well liked!
I was playing with the idea of making this mermaid an ongoing OC. o3o I don't have a mermaid character yet, and I also really like the rainbow tail. >//u//> Not going to lie~ hehe
I don't know though. :meow: We will see when I have the time to draw regularly again. I have so many WIPS, and so many ideas that are just begging to be made into complete pictures! TT^TT

Beautiful artwork!!!  I especially love the mermaid's long swirly hair and colorful tail...and I'll bet all those sailors would abandon ship just for her!
