Day 796: Random Fish, Plymouth Aquarium

Day 796: Random Fish, Plymouth Aquarium


Reference image: Personal photo

Time taken: 15 minutes

So, this was a bit of a weird day as I did half of the sketch before I went to work then forgot to actually finish it off later in the day. Luckily, it was pretty much finished when I lift it before work so I didn’t have to worry too much. As for what fish it is I have no idea, again like the Lionfish it was in the huge tank in the middle of the Aquarium. but I liked how the photo came out so decided to sketch it.

Till next time!

So, another image from the aquarium, this time one of the glowing jellyfish in one of the many small tanks in the aquarium. Again I really like how this one came out, and was a bit worried while sketching it that it wasn’t going to looks anything like the subject and reference photo but once I added the black background into it came out really well and it really helped it pop out of the sketch.

Till next time!


Day 793: Lionfish, Plymouth Aquarium

Day 793: Lionfish, Plymouth Aquarium

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, for my wifes birthday we headed down to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth to have a day out and while there I took a few photos of some of the fishes and marine life down thereĀ  including this one of a Lionfish (or at least I assume its a lionfish, it was in a huge tank with god know how many other fish sdidn’t have its own information board for me to be sure about but, as far as I can tell its a Lionfish). Anyway I used my brush pen for this one for something a bit different and really liked how it came out with this oneĀ , with the shading being a lot better than I thought it would turn out while I was doing it which, is always a nice thing to happen. So, hope you like the fish and expect a couple more to come over the next few days as I choose some of my photos to sketch.

Till next time!
