Sterlet

Colored pencils, The process of drawing

The other day I met real sterlets – the most amazing water creatures I had ever seen, and instantly fell in love with them. 🙂

These fishes have long narrow “noses” and gorgeous dark bodies 🙂 They were so adorable that I thought I should draw one.

Colored pencils, several hours of work. Here is the result! 🙂

It was a real pleasure to work on this drawing! I don’t use colored pencils much because of my devotion to the black ink and ink liners, but this technique is such a wonderful magic. 🙂 I love seeing how layers of color lie down one above another and blend.

I’m sure I’ll pay more attention to colored pencils option the future. 🙂
