icopic Challenge #4

This is an illustration I did for the icopic challenge #4. The 3 colours were brown yellow and orange.
Colours used: Y06, Y04, Y13, Y15, Y17YR23, YR24,YR04, E49 $E44
Inked with Copic multiliner, on copic illustration paper. 
I also used Copic Opaque white. 
Doesn't get any more Copic than that!
So the colours immediately brought to mind Orcas in the sunset to me. I live in Vancouver of course which has around it's shores more Orcas than anywhere else in the world. I adore orcas and I've adopted from the Killer Whale Adoption program since 2009. The first whale I adopted was a a transient male named Seaforth, but shortly after I adopted him he was declared dead. They let me choose a new whale. So I adopted Current. He's a young one. Then randomly it turns out that someone I work with also adopted a whale, and it turned out to be Current's bother, Surf. Very random.

Anyway, little story. I wanna win that swatchbook! wish me luck :D


  1. Amazing job! I hope you win! I've never worked with opaque white before. Sorry to hear about Seaforth, but hope Current is doing well. Good luck and hope you win that swatchbook!

  2. Thanks RaeRae :D
    Opaque white is awesome for adding nice contrast or.. fixing mistakes >.>

  3. WOW!!! This is amazing! So gorgeous!!
