Crowntail Betta Fish


Hi Everyone, it's Saskia here.

A Crowntail Betta fish is maybe one of the most beautiful in the world.

Betta fish originated in the warm waters of Thailand, formerly known as Siam.
Crowntail Betta fish (Betta splendens), also called Siamese Fighting Fish, are a very popular breed with fish tank owners. Deriving the name from their unique tail fin characteristics, male Crowntail Bettas create a dramatic first impression with their vivid colors and flashy fin extensions.

Today I want to show you how you can draw an easy ocean background.
 

Step 1: First, you colour a fairly thick line with BG10.
Step 2: With BG11 you draw thin flicks to about two-thirds of the line you put with BG10.
 (You do not have to blend it yet. That will come in a later stage)


 Step 3:  BG34 you draw little swipes, about one third of the bottom of the line.
After this step you start to blend.
First start with BG34, after that you start to blend with the other colours.
Step 4: First, you colour a fairly thick line with BG0000.  

 Step 5: With BG000 you draw thin flicks to about two-thirds of the line you put with BG0000. (You do not have to blend it yet. That will come in a later stage)
  Step 6:  BG01 you draw little swipes, about one third of the bottom of the line.
After this step you start to blend.
First start with BG01, after that you start to blend with the other colours

Repeat all steps until you have done the whole background.


 With these photos I want to show you how I coloured the head and body of the Crowntail Fish.


First of all, I start with a base and then I continue colouring. Everything goes on feeling.
I'm not trying to think but just go with the flow.
  

The image is a digital stamp "Betta Fish Crowntail"  from Fabrika fantasy.

I used the following Copic Markers to colour this print.
Crowntail Fish: Y35-38 and YR04-07-09
Background: BG0000 - 000 - 01 and BG10 - 11 - 34
Copic Opaque White for the dots
On the bubbles: Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.

I hope you have read this post with pleasure.

Until next time!
