Fish leaving planet earth, for the second time. by longestdistance Fish leaving planet earth, for the second time. by longestdistance
I was feeling very nostalgic and decided to revisit one of my favorite older artworks. Here's the original: Fishies leaving planet earth
Rendering the water was a challenge but I won't back down so easily!

Here's a closeup of the fish:

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Very pretty! :heart: Those fishes with their long tails are so elegant, and the fact you used them for sugesting the motion of the jump is really well done. I love how shiny the water is, and the fact that you used a rope to kinda represent the earth as a lantern is nice too.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you noticed all the little details. I had a lot of fun working on the fish, especially since it's not something I visit often. (maybe I should!)

Thank you so much! I was really inspired by betta fish. They're so beautiful and colorful IRL and I really wanted to do them justice~ (while taking my own artistic liberties of course) :D

such beautifully graceful fish<3
the glass like style is less pronounced here, which I think is really great because there's already a lot going on. Good call!
