THE FISH BOWL

Welcome to the fishbowl!!
***
 
I am really fond of these little guys...
I stepped out of my comfort zone
of collaging a found image 
and hand drew these fish!!
I am quite please with the out come!
 
The backgrounds were all done with alcohol inks,
stamps, inks and gel pens!

I made these for a swap on ATC's For All
I sure hope they go to good homes 
cause they are special to me!!

MEET THE FISH!!
***
 
This is "Angelo" the Angel Fish!!
**
I wish I could say that I came up with this idea,
but I did see this image on the internet,  
and I decided to draw him myself!!
I used the original image as a visual,
and free hand drew him!
I used markers, sharpies, & gel pens to color him in!!
I did add the halo (not on the original)
once it he was placed on the card!
****

 
This is "Scarlet O' Herring"!!
**
Scarlet is colored bright red,
using markers, sharpies, and gel pens.
There are very faint red spots on her in this picture,
after I added her to the card
I added black dots on the spots & tail.
(see above finished card)
She is the plainest of the fish I drew,
but I just love the way she turned out!
****

This is "Korry" the Koi!!
**
Korry (along with Angelo) was the more
challenging of the four.
Koi's have lots going on with
different colors and pattens!
I used other koi images
 as visuals as I drew this,
then colored him with markers,
sharpies, and gel pens.
I love the way he turned out!
****
This is "Goldie" goldfish!!
**
I wanted to do a big happy goldfish
and I ended up with Goldie!
She is the same as the others,
hand drawn and colored in
using markes, sharpies and gel pens.
I think she is adorable....
its kinda Dr. Seuss-ish to me!!
"It's good to be gold!"
****


The outcome....
I think I will keep practicing my drawing! 
 I might get good one day!
