Yeah I didn't realize until AFTER I'd drawn Ginger here.. that's what I eventually named her.. how much she looked like Cloe. I hadn't seen the movie since I was in single digits so maybe there was some subconscious influence.

This is so cute!

Oh! Did you know goldfish are actually not supposed to live in bowls?

Why is that?

Because an adult goldfish looks like this (the small ones we usually see are just babies)

Because goldfish produce a lot of ammonia (which kills them if they're exposed to it for too long) so they require an aquarium with a filter.

Because the growth of a goldfish is stunted when they're put in a small home, which causes internal deformities and a slow and painful death.

Because....yeah XD All of that is why

Look up "Adult goldfish" and "goldfish pond", you'll notice all of the fish are pretty big, which is because they're in the proper environment which allows them to grow and live a long time.

Goldfish are actually supposed to live to be in their late 30s (they outlive a dog if they're taken care of well enough!)

So many drawings! :XD: They look great! This fish reminds me of the one from Pinochio (can't spell).

Yeah in hindsight she reminds me of that fish too, funny enough I didn't even remember that movie had a fish in it till later.. must have been subconscious inspiration.

I know that feeling. When I was writing a chapter in one of my stories, I unintentionally added a piece from a movie in it. After that, I just kept growing on the parody. :XD: She looks great though! :D
