I had the light source in the top left corner to be able to tone my final piece as well as make a good contrast between the black and white. I added in a coral reef on the bottom right side of the piece because the way I wanted the hybrid to be positioned in front of it and near it so it can hide if need be. The pose and emotion that I put the hybrid in was nervous and kind of shamed pose with the feeling of depression and loneliness for the feeling of my hybrid being a freak and does not feel proud and accepted for what has happened.
Stage 4 is a stage where I was stuck between straight dorsal spines and wavy dorsal spines, they are located on the back off the hybrid starting from the head, down to the bottom of the spine. I decided to go along with the straight ones in the end to add more of a feature of the broad barred Firefish within this hybrid.
I then started to colour the hybrid by using the overlay tool for I had toned the hybrid there was no need to worry about worrying about the opacity of the pen for it would already do it with the tone. I did the same with the background and the coral reef on different layers to complete my final piece which I am proud off and had such a good time creating it. I look forward to push my skills even further and progress further within this year.
