Love this!  She's so adorable!  And I can imagine that she's related to the koi fish.

Are you selling prints?

I am not selling prints at the moment, sorry :(. I might look into submitting this one for a print through DA, but I've never done that before so I'm not sure how to do it. Thanks for the comment!

Or maybe Zazzle or Fab --- even eBay! It's really beautiful. I'd love to buy it for my daughter. Thank you so much for sharing your work!

Ok I tried submitting the print through DA, so hopefully that will work.  There will be a larger margin on the long sides because the image ratio is so long.  If you decide you'd still like a print, let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks!

she is sooo adorable, I could make a story out of this drawing alone :) Seems so simple with the soft colors and relaxed expression, I like the fireflies you added for the serene moment :D

I love how you did the tail! Its silver then leaf orange! Brilliant! I love the hair too! Fantastic job

the tail is so detailed :) Maybe you should add more skin color tones on face.

Lol I'd love to see the face of someone who sees the lower half of her.
