How to Simply... draw a rainbow parrotfish?
Jennie Wickings, artist and illustrator, finds all her inspiration in animals and nature. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw a rainbow parrotfish with colouring pencils!
Look online to find a model of a rainbow parrotfish. You can also find your inspiration in aquariums! To colour your fish, find inspiration by simply looking at flowers around you.
Start with the lightest colouring pencil, in this tutorial, Jennie starts with yellow. And draw the outline.
Highlight part of the outline, in blue.
Tip: Pay attention to the relationship between the mouse and the eye of the fish, as well as the proportions! The tail of a fish is always longer than expected.
Switch back to the yellow colouring pencil.
Tip: always go lighter to darker and make sure to go light when pressing the pencils: you can always go darker if needed!
Use the orange and the red and go on colouring your fish. Mix the orange with the yellow.
Use the blue and mix with yellow as well to achieve a very nice turquoise. Keep on adding more colours: red, green, purple
Tip: press harder and harder toward the end to have some very vibrant colours!
Use the blue to add more details and do not forget to leave some white highlights.
