So he's the man with the fishes. I'd think he has long had business with them.

Now we see what's possible with ink and color. This picture as a lot of variety, and I really mean it. I'll see countless of textures - skin of the man and the fishes, beard, necklace pearls, background, microdetails. The amount makes the picture something you cannot just turn away - you'll need to concentrate it a bit to get the full feeling of the scene.

I'll give you merit for the beard. As it were, the correct straight but spread-out hair is one of the greatest challenges I know. Your's is done with great concentration and application. The long beard is essential for him to show his story.

I really like how the fish are in absence of order. It gives depth, and it's always good to have multiple perspectives.

As fish do have scales, I'd have wished for more detailing for the fishes on the top. The blur I see breaks the feeling when we look up, and it takes us to confusion. I'd say that it's great on the center, and for absolute best looks our attention should stay there.

Thank you for showing your excellency at your inkmanship!
