Goldfish Study

Goldfish study for that upcoming project. I've been getting a lot of people saying lately that I should use more opaque brush strokes, so I found a conte brush in Painter that is very opaque, and went at it. It was more fun than I had anticipated. :) That damn tail gave me a lot of trouble though...

Oh, and thanks again to everyone who has been critiquing me on this project! :hug:

lol when I was little, goldfish kinda freaked me out. Now I just think they're ugly. But this makes me like goldfish.

That's lovely! I really like the square brush strokes, as others have mentioned. It's a nice effect. The scales look great.
