ILLUSTRATIONFRIDAY:SEA


Fait avec Corel Painter et Photoshop
Made with Corel Painter and Photoshop

Certaines personnes préfèrent la montagne. Moi c'est vraiment la mer qui me fascine. J'imagine toutes sortes de merveilles dans les fonds marins. Ce dessin se veut un hommage aux poissons qui hantent les profondeurs du Grand Bleu.
Some like mountains. I really am a water person. Sea is fascinating me. I imagine all kinds of wonders in the deepth. I want this drawing to be an homage to all the fishes who are haunting the deepness of The Big Blue.

Fantastic work and so wonderful colors, I like this a lot.

This looks like layered tissue paper. The fish are so fluid -- how perfect for the subject.

Thanks, Katili. The most wonderful thing is that it's made only with digital. It's only my second trial with Painter. Small correction has been made with Photoshot, wich I know a lot better. (Nice Icon)
Andrea: From the fish's specialist, this is an honor!!!!! :o)

LA! Oh, my dear, it is Beauti-i-iful! I love the tissue paper idea, it would be so cool to see that done.
I think the colors(I know everyone monitors are different, but lovin' what I'm seein') are wonderfully balanced and just the right drifting cool over the warm. Well done!

ldahl: I'm touched by such a nice comment.
Anon: I was really surprised by this watercolor effect. And you can also choose wich kind of paper you want to use. Very funny to do.
Detlef: Thanks. Your "creature of the sea" is a wonder. Is that finally your self-portrait? LOL.

Il y a beaucoup de plages en Mediterranee qu'on appelle "Grande Bleue"... Moi, aussi, la mer me fascine! Peut-etre que c'est l'esprit d'aventure, du voyage, je ne sais pas. Tout ce que je sais, c'est que je peux passer des heures a contempler la mer!
Great drawing! I love using Painter!

merlinprincesse a dit…

Cream: Gee you really speak French! As-tu vu le magnifique film "Le Grand Bleu". Ahhh! La mer. Ce doit être à cause de nos ancêtres marins... ;o)

Ça fait un bel effet avec Painter. Je trouve que tu dessines tellement bien! Les poissons sont pleins de vie et de frétillement

Caroline a dit…

Fabulous - and so glad there is another person enjoying Painter out there - 'cos I think it is fab! You've really got those watercolours to look real. (I've not done so well with them... yet... )

Also brilliantly lose watery fish for the subject.

marc a dit…

merlinprincesse a dit…

Gene: Poisson, ma puce, pas poison. LOL Mais ce sont peut-être des poissons empoisonnés...
Calvin: *double blush*
Scott: Hey Scott! Long time no see! Thanks and cool you're back!
Unknown: I thougt of this illo as a snorkeling experience. Love snorkle. Love
Mei: Merci! T'es une chouette copine!
Caro: I'm just beginning with Painter but discovered that you can choose the grain of the virtual paper. It makes all the difference!

merlinprincesse a dit…

Marc: Merci beaucoup. Et Bienvenue sur IlloFriday!!!!! Et sur mon Blog, bien sur...

modroom a dit…

This is beautiful. I love the loose lines and the colour layering. Very aqua and flow. And you've chosen underwater too....:::-)

goldo a dit…

miam, des poissons pour merlinprincesse ... :o)

modroom a dit…

So this image was done entirely using software, you did'nt scan anything in?

merlinprincesse a dit…

Goldo: Tu réussis encore à me faire rigoler, malgré ta peine... Prends soin de toi mon ami.
Modroom: Yep Mushroom, entirely. I first made the background, then I draw the fishes with my pad. No scanning. I finally used Photoshop to modifie a little my image... I'm soooooooooooo good! (And humble)....

modroom a dit…

Seeing as it's soooo good, you're allowed to say that......:::::-)

No, I wouldn't want to be a gentle-midget-gay-lesbian-78yo-man neither!

merlinprincesse a dit…

Where is that mushroom... Smooching with some strange fish?

crosshatched a dit…

colors are terrific -- free and playful feel, GREAT!

merlinprincesse a dit…

Thanks for this nice compliment, Crosshatched! :o)

Holly a dit…

Brilliant! Love it.

Grace a dit…

So how do you do this? You paint it then use ink? or ????

merlinprincesse a dit…

Holly: Thanks!
Gracie: No dear! It's an all virtual painting. Made with a program called Painter. I will send a copy of the digital drawing to you when I will send this Théo painting to your mommy! Give a big hug to Oreodog and Jack! Kiss!

Ginnie a dit…

Ok, so now after all that (above comments) I must add that when I first snorkeled (it was in St. Croix), I kept saying over and over again, "Omigod, omigod, omigod!!!" Seriously! I couldn't believe it. It was like I entered a different world.

merlinprincesse a dit…

I really thing that snorkeling is like an out-of-body experience! Once I did it in Acapulco's Bay. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

carla a dit…

This really transports me under the water...everyting is floating and sinuous...the colors and shapes are watery...I love it!

merlinprincesse a dit…

Thank you very much Carla! Had fun doing it!!!

catnapping a dit…

i love the depth you gave this. and the true sense of being underwater.

merlinprincesse a dit…

Catnapping: I really don't know how I could achieve that... But it was kindofun...I love to be underwater....

Don a dit…

Nice watercolor water. I'm starting to use watercolors now... just getting used to them. I like the way they are bleeding together in this.

merlinprincesse a dit…

Those are digital watercolors... Thanks for the compliment!!!
