Sketchy Fish

Hello! I played along with the sketch challenge at SCS today using images from Gone Fishing

I stamped the fish, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copics, starting with YG93. 

Filled in the rest with C1.

Then added a band of pink with R20.

 Added some shading with C3.

Then some deeper shading with C5. 

For the background scene, I sponged Memento Desert Sand.

Then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa. 

Stamped the trees, off the edge on either side, using Memento Rich Cocoa. 

I used a sticky note to mask the top and then sponged a bit of Rich Cocoa to make a horizon line. 

I colored in the trees with YG93. I didn't fill them in completely, instead I just made them kinda splotchy. 

Added E35 to the tree trunks and the ground.

 Then I used W1 to add more shading to the ground and fill in the trees, blending a bit.

I used E35 (too dark) and E33 to add ripples to the water, then used the white gel pen to add highlights. 

I sponged another piece of cardstock with Memento Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa. 

Then stamped the fishing fly repeatedly, in a random pattern, using Rich Cocoa, stamped off for a lighter image. 

The little silhouette fisherman was stamped in Rich Cocoa and the fish was cut out and adhered with Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used an Ivory card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Theresa, thanks for the info and all the copic marker numbers for coloring the fish. I tried to color a fish without copics. It came out ok, but not as pretty as yours. Thanks for sharing.
