On a rainy day, you might see young skyfish flicker in and out of existence, just at the edge of your vision. Though you will never see an adult one: humans don't believe and our inability to accept would erase them from reality. So, they hide where our eyes will never reach.

Traditional media on A4 bristol paper
Mostly watercolours and copics, some fineliners in gray and blue.

Those armored scale faces look so awesome, gives them a look of being ancient and form another time, like real life Placodermis.
I am wondering, what would touching them feel like? Are they solid or made out of water and air?

Thank you very much~! :D

And well, I guess we have to try the touching thing next time we run into one of the skyfish, right? I really have no idea. :D

This is absolutely gorgeous! Not only do I love the composition and the colors but I love the different characteristics of the skyfish themselves, and the beautiful cloud swirls. Amazing work! :)

Simply fantastic. It´s moving, breathing and, despite being blue, it´s not feeling cold.

The full-grown sky fish look haunting, beautiful, and (to me) friendly. They definitely look like they are hidden from the woman with the umbrella or reminiscent of a daydream on a rainy day. Lovely picture.

Thank you! :D
I don't think they are dangerous, especially since they wish to stay hidden from human eyes anyway. :D Though I wonder what kind of interaction one could have with a creature like that. They look ancient and might already have been alive in times when humans built the first streetlights. Or maybe the first streets. :D
