How to Draw Koi Fish With Color Pencils – Как нарисовать рыбку Кои цветными карандашами


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto
and today we will draw fish. Let´s start by sketching
the general outline, this is a very simple shape. I´ll draw two fish going in a circular form. Something like this, the body and the tails. Then we can go over the line darker and start doing some detail. I don´t like this one
I am going to erase it, sorry. The fish itself was ok, what I didn´t like
was the overall shape that was creating with the other one. I want them more like
forming a circle. This is better, much better! I´m happy now! Let´s do the fins on top
and on the sides. I lighten the pencil marks
a little bit with the eraser to then start coloring! The head itself is pretty smooth
I´ll do it with an orange color, and then the top, the lights with an amber. And some shadow tones with a blue. Some black for the eyes
and let´s design some scales with magenta. You don´t need to perfectly
draw every scale, I think if you do that, the fish
will end up looking pretty stiff. Just draw some scales and then
suggest other ones, and the mind will automatically
fill in the blanks. Make the mind of your public
work for you! [laughs]. You may keep using these
colors or adding colors if you like, use the white one for highlights. The list of materials is in the
information bellow the video. The colors on this fish may
very a lot, in this case I will do the fins from an orange to a white. Nice! I LOVE doing this! Let´s draw the other fins and the tail in the same fashion. Let´s lighten the pencil on the other one as well because if you put the color
on top of it, may look a little bit dirty. We use the magenta again
for some shadows and for the scales. Some white reflections and then the orange. This is really fun 🙂 I think this is the first time in my life that I draw a fish, at least since I was a kid. Very good! It’s coming along,
it is important to use different tones as you see. Then the white tail…
and let´s draw some shadows, this creates an effect like they´re off the bottom. Nice! The shadows can make
a big difference in your drawings. Very good! It does look different, doesn´t it? The shadow is darker close to the fish
and it goes a little bit lighter further away. Excellent! If you enjoyed it
please give it a LIKE, share it to your friends
and subscribe to this channel and I will see you on Tuesday. Subtitle by Grethel Trejo

    Hello Leonardo.
    This is lovely! 
    I enjoy your warm happy style of communicating! Your voice reminds me of a famous guy who would do voices on childrens tv up here in Denmark when I was a child, so it makes me all relaxed and comfy!
    Thankyou for sharing your art.

    Did you use a white watercolor pencil. An artist once told me to avoid white in water color and to plan ahead by thinking of the negative space or (scrapping-I had to find out about on my own)? Any way what is your opinion on the matter?

    I like this one. & I believe the type of Koi that you are using in this video are called Butterfly Koi. They have the long fins like the ones in this video & are very beautiful(especially when they're really big; ex- more than 12 inches long).
