I guess this falls under animals? Technically? A friend requested an emergency magikarp. 1.5 hours.

It's so good it scares me. I love how you drew the gaping mouth, and I love the lighting!

Haha, thanks - I like to think that it's him looking out of the screen at the viewer. We must all look so hideous and stupid to him.

The expression is simply flawless :D
I love how your paintings always look so soft; how do you do that?

Honestly.. I'm not sure ): I think in this case it may have been the heavy use of blue tones, and also the focused detail on the magikarp's face (as opposed to the rest of the body which is left fairly undefined) that makes it appear softer.
