Sea Creature by Syra-Syra Sea Creature by Syra-Syra
Wanted to practise with alcohol and watercolours. Didnt turn out as well as I was hoping :(
Anyone know how to use it? I can't find many tutorials. My little splashes dont show >.<
Maybe I'm mixing too much water with it... I dunno. D:

Crits, tips and advice muchly appreciated. :)

My first art piece in months. Or at least 6 weeks... :XD:

Idk what it is, but I was aiming for gurnard wings. :L

Ooohh, this guy's NICE. :D
I love the 'textures' you've used for the skin, and the water looks awesome.
Also, that octo in the background is absolutely beautiful. :la:
Your plants in the corners are amazing, and the colours, and how you can see the sun shining in through the water and asdfg EVERYTHING!
:XD:

Wow. Um. WOW?

These colors are incredible. I don't know what you going for with the alcohol and watercolors, but is this not already way up high on the whoa-scale? It is, it totally is, this looks awesome.

Holy crepe, this looks amazing. Your use of colour is stunning, and I love the little gold highlights, and the bubbly/water effect over the whole thing. The detail in this is looks great.
Also, I've no idea about alcohol + watercolour tutorials, I googled it and found this

But you've probably already seen that? :XD:
