Flying With the Goldfish

Hi Guys! It's been so long since my last update ^^
( How many times did I say this? lol )
This year is my first year at university
so I was quite busy during the semester.

Recently, I've got an eye problem. It's called 'Optic Neuritis'.
Now my right eye is permanently, partly blind. ( But that's ok,
doesn't bother me that much ^^ ) My beloved art teacher
gave me a watercolor set as a gift when I was admitted in a
hospital. So I've been practiced painting watercolor since then ,
and I think somehow it's easier than CG! you guys should try.
It's pretty challenging.

About this painting, I just want to draw a goldfish lol that's all!
I've been drawing this style for awhile. just wanna try new
things and I think I can express my thoughts better this way.
Almost forgot how to draw manga style haha XDDD
just kidding..but seriously.

Hope you guys like it anyway!
ps. Thank you for all favs, comments and watches <3
really appreciate them!

Tools : Winsor&Newton Cotman Watercolours,
rough 200 gsm. watercolor paper, white poster color, pencil and eraser. Editing in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

the goldfish are damly pretty, the setting too and the little girl is just cute. It is true that's a change but there is so much thing you can do whith natural-watery painting ... And the challenge can even become a bonus :omfg:
Anyway i'm talking way too much, but this is a really good drawing and i'm happy to have it to my fav (like most of your work that i'm going to chase from now *.*)
