Under the Sea

I got this thing with mermaids and I seem to collect quite a few already so when I saw this gorgeous digi by the East Wind (Lucy Loo Mermaid) I knew I had to add her to my collecction and wanted to colour her with my copics.... LOL


The background is made with Prima Colorbloomsprays which have a nice pearly shine. I used the inks with some Dutch Doobadoo stencils. There are some stamps in the background too, from IO and Indigo blue. The seaplants are by Dylusions and the very tiny fish are by IO. 
I found the quote on the internet and wrote it my posca markers and a copic multiliner.

For colouring the image I used quite a few copic colours:
It took me a few hours to colour this mermaid especially the hairs and tail but as long as I can draw or colour I'm happy.... I normally start with the lightest colours first and build up to the darker ones and than back to the lighter colours for blending. 
Because of the transparancy of the copic colours it's also fun to blend different colours like I did in the tail, using a light yellow (Y11) to blend the purples and blues together and ending up with some lovely green.
