Under the sea waves. My micro illustration

in elegance •  3 months ago

Today I want to show you a miniature illustration. I drew it for a micromarathon, which took place in the Instagram. This picture I drew on theme «water».
For drawing I used alcohol markers, a liner and a white gel pen.

Previously I drew the contours of the drawing with a pencil.

Then I began to paint over. I decided to start with the main figure of the picture - the turtle. I used the markers of the color of the umber, orange, yellow, dark gray, blue, and liner.

Painted the water with a blue marker. With a white gel pen drew strips - light flashes of water ripples and then painted them with mint color.

I drew a distant background - sandy beach, palm trees and sky. For the sky I used a cold blue marker to make the sky different from the sea.

I emphasized some details with the liner. My drawing is ready.

Since there was a restriction on the size of the drawing (should not exceed 5 cm), I photographed also my picture near the jubilee coin of the USSR for comparison.
