He does look better on the paper other then the Internet, more detail shows up then. But he's still cute. Are you ever going to add more to the back ground. Jessica Megan

That's the best hippocampus I've ever seen. It's a very good interpretation of how they should look. Being a guy, I always envisioned them as much scarier, but this is perfect. Jessica Megan
replies: " thanks. i like it too, but not THAT much ^_^ hmmm...i wonder what a scarier hippocampus would look like...*ponders*"

I seem to be in the same situation as you- I have a new set of watercolour pencils and they're taking some getting used to! I also like drawing hippocampus (hippocampi?
). I like this painting, especially the eyes, but I think it would look better with a fin on its back, as its back looks a little bare. Also, for watercolours, try dropping salt on watercolour to make bubbles or just an interesting background. Wax crayons are also good- experiment with painting over white crayon for textured seaweed. Hope I helped, keep drawing (and painting)! Jessica Megan
replies: "hey, thanks for the tips! i'll have to try them out on my next watercolor adventure!! ^_^ i think i've heard the salt thing before, but the white crayon is GENIUS!! thanks again!! "
