I do not have all the proper tools to get the same look as the artist. I do have some watercolor brushes so experimented a little with that and ink but ended up using micron pens. I do not have a light box for tracing and was to lazy to use the window holding the page up for that long. I ended scanning and copying my original pencil sketch and inking over it. My original was very messy so eventually I would like to get a light box to be able to trace onto nicer paper. Also I will eventually invest in some nicer brushes because I love the look and options those allow.
I really enjoyed making the coral and also the different sea creatures. I held back from adding more details. I would like to try this again and work to bring out the textures more. That said I'm happy with my first attempt!
