Watercolor in Progress

Last night I wanted to do a watercolor painting of Arley and all I got done was the sketch. I just traced a photo because I can't draw a proportionate fish to save my life (where are my art skills when I need them). The paper is 6" x 8" and I plan on painting it then going over the lines with a Micron pen.

Sketch:

8/16/14~12/28/14 Arley - Butterfly SDeT
2/14/15~8/22/15 Eros - Butterfly HM
6/12/14~11/2/15 Shulk - Multi. DT
11/30/15 Undyne - VT

Finished it :) I scanned it but the colors were really off, so I took a photo with my phone instead. This was really fun to do. Maybe I'll take a request or two if I have time.

There's some art stuff I need to work on, but if I decide to take a few requests then I'll most likely made a new thread for it.

Haha ! Ok ! :)

What types of paint do you use ? I've been wanting to try painting my fish but I've never used water colors before , only acrylics

I used watercolor pencils for this one because I can get more detail with them. I bought a watercolor kit from Hobby Lobby that came with the pencils, paint in tubes, some paint blocks, 2 brushes, and 2 drawing pencils. The brushes I use for watercolor though are called Aqua-Flo and come in a set of 3.

Cool ! Thinking of getting a kit like this ! Do you still use the pencils on canvas or just on sketch paper then ?
