Patricia, great job on those fish.  I am with you, can't stand to take the hook out.  However, they are tuna.  I spend time with my master fisherwoman grandmother when young, and my job was to ly on the beach next to the fish and she took the pic to show all the size of the fish (a human yardstick, if you will).  I laid next to many a snook!


Rebecca.  Welcome and beautiful drawing.  looks like you've done this before!

 :thankyou: everyone for your kind words and encouragement!
lynn p., yes, I have drawn before, when I was preparing for the college entrance exam, but what I did back then was more sketchy and technical. Now I want to try a more artistic approach :)

 :thankyou:  lynn for your encouragement.  Interesting story about you lying next to the fish and your Grandmother taking photos of her catch for size recording.  Amazing that things like that don't phase children ... as I said, I could never ever take the fish off the hooks, I felt too darned sorry for them.   Patricia

I tried to make my fish look like ahi hanging off the side of the boat.  I used the smudging technique but used some light cross hatching for dark spots in the sky.


I used water-soluable graphite pencils, but am afraid to add water because I think it will make the cross hatching disappear.  I will experiment before I try it.

Oh, I used hemp paper for this drawing, but I think it is not suitable for cross-hatching.

The second fish from the left looks too flat.  What can I do?

I like your fish, Mea.  :clap: The second fish may look flat because it's as wide as the others, but I don't know what to do about that.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Good job Mea but as for slimming the second fish down ... I wouldn't know .... just hang in there and I am sure Nolan will come to the rescue.     Patricia

 :clap: Your hanging ahi look great, Mea.  As for the second fish, I'm thinking that going lighter in the center of the fish and darkening your cross hatching at the sides will give him a bit more plumpness. I'd like to see what happens when you wet the graphite.  That in itself might help you to round your fish.  O0
