Mudskipper Sketchbook Illustration Preview 01 image

Mudskipper

It’s been a little while since I got some time & inclination to open up my sketchbook & put something in it again, so I thought it was about time.

Mudskippers are amazing critters. They’re as cute & quirky as they are mindblowing, so of course I had to try to immortalise one in my own special way, even if they’re not really facing any immediate ecological danger. 😜

The biggest challenge with this piece was trying to manipulate my limited palette of Copic markers to work together to do justice to its natural colouring. It turned out ok, right?

I do love the challenge of working within some limitations, I think it helps you come up with more creative ways to solve problems.
It’s for that very reason I purposely try to keep my range of markers small (well, that and their comparatively high local pricing… 😑).

Are you as much of a fan of mudskippers as me? Let me know in the comments below. 😁👍🏼

Enjoy! https://www.digital-impulse.com/wp-content/plugins/chetmojis-svg/ThumbsUp.svg
