She wanted a colorful and rainbowy fish. :D The rainbow-part is not really visible on the scan, since glitter does not scan well. ^^

Though I DO hope it will be colorful enough for her. I'm so not used to work with many colors in the same drawing. ^^'

Fantastic work! To begin with, you've done an amazing job overall with the picture! You've really nailed the incredible amount of textures involved. The water has an incredible sense of movement from the slow, undulating movements of the fish, while still conveying the sense of gravel beneath the surface of the water. The lily pads have an almost slick, texutre to them, giving the feeling of having a subtle layer of mositure on them. The fish itself is incredibly well done, havnig a heavier sense of texture in the scales, which gives it a sense of weight in the image drawing the eyes to it. The flow of the lines in the image also do a wonderful job of drawing the eye in and around the piece, without ever having it pushed out of the frame. All and all, magnificent piece!

I want to purchase a print of this... new to DA, but fish is part of my soul, this is exquisite. Have no idea how to go about doing this....

It's very small though, I don't think a print would do it justice. :D Cards could work and I can add it to my zazzle-shop, if that works for you. :)

And thank you!

How large would the card be and what is your price? What is the size of the original? It is not so much a huge piece I want, but the original, and the quality I am drawn to me. Let me know, I am as many artists are far from rich, please think of this when you send me your pricing. Thank you!

The original card is a typical ACEO, so it's 6.4cm x 8.9cm. It is of course possible to scan it on high resolution and then blow it up to... uhmm... whatever you want, but I don't really recommend it.

For an ACEO-Original I tend to Charge CHF 25, included non-insured shipping. Other commission prices are here: [link]

The colouring here is done very nicely, and I have to say, even though the design of the fish is rather simple, the detail put into each scale is definitely noteworthy!

Beautiful work!

Thanks. ^^ It was a rather simple request for an ACEO too. Sadly, the massive amounts of glitter on it won't show on the scan. ^^

Wow...Du hast sehr viel Talent!

Die Farben sind sehr schön und harmonieren auch hervorragend miteinander.
Und das Wasser...wundervoll dargestellt.

He was the fish specialist at the pet shop where we met :D

One never stops learning about someone. O_o I wouldn't ever have thought of him as a person with knowledge about fishes.
