Step 1: Basic Shapes

First we start drawing basic shapes: the girl body is like a bean and the swim ring seems a donut ahah.

Anyway this will help us to figure it out how the figure is done.

Step 2: Details

When we have done with the shapes we can finally add details on her face: eyes, hair, mouth ect. We also draw the sea, fishes and the sun.

Step 3: Inking

Once the drawing is done, we ink the picture making both thin and bold lines. This will help us to increase dynamism of the scene.

Step 4: Painting

We paint the girl starting from the skin: we will use brown, pink, red and ochre for reproducing the tanned skin.

We will layer colors several time.

Attention: wait until the previous layer dried, otherwise colors will mix together in a bad way!

Since the swim ring is transparent, we color only the shadows of it, adding also few reflections.

Then we color remaining parts: fishes, sea and the sun.

Step 5: End

We add final reflection with white gel pen and that's it! ;)
