Treasure for Life!

Hello, I'm here today to show you my latest Karleigh Sue project.

Treasure for Life

I used a very special image that needed to be showcased in her own environment - the ocean, I have teemed her with Coral Border  from Make it Crafty.
I spent way to many hours colouring this image, trying to create the illusion of her being underwater. This truly was a labor of love <3

I have primarily used Copic's for this image but I have also used a white polychromos pencil, a white gel pen and some dark blue fluid chalk ink. 
Skin - E000, E00, E01
Hair - E53, E55, E57
Tail - YG03, YG05, YG25, YG67
