Hello everybody copic lovers!
Franz from Italy here :)
Summer is coming and I couldn't resist to Naunet, the latest super lovely mermaind from Mo!
So I decided to use her for a little tutorial about colouring the bottom of the sea...
Here is my protagonist with some seaweed;
I started colouring them with BG72:
I added some G63 to the bottom:
BG70 to blend the top of the seaweed:
mmm... too light! I've to blend again with some BG11 and again with BG10:
Now I start colouring the water adding some BG000 from the bottom to the top:
Here I used a little brush and some copic refills (BG02, BG000, 0) to add and blend some blue on the top:
The stippling tecnique around the mermaid using BG02:
I blended adding BG000:
...stippling again using BG11:
Now I used a lovely Dutch Doobadoo mask to add some bubbles around Nounet:
I started blending some colour away and the effect was nice, but I wanted to give a touch of colour so I colored the bubbles with Y000 and RV000:
Here I simply added some more bubbles:
...and the work is done!
I hope that my tutorial could be useful for someone :)
Here is the complete list of Copics I used to colour the rest of the image:

Have a lovely day everybody, thanks for stopping by :)
