DRAWING FISH IS FUN!!! are those betta fish? AAAA so cute!!! and the blue-purple scales, yeessss
also, a new pose?! i should really try different poses that arent, well, standing XD
Thank you!!! Idk the name of those water lines either - are they from refraction? Reflection? A diffusion pattern? Total internal reflection? I'm a physics student, I should know this stuff??
Anyway, yesss, fish are so fun to draw Especially betta fish! Their fins are so elegant and the colours are just - yes. I don't think I'd be quite as happy drawing, say, an angel fish - stripes just aren't my thing, generally. I want to try drawing orcas (yes, I know they're not fish), manta rays, and whale sharks, too. I think I've said before, but whale sharks have this beautiful pattern of white dots - so aesthetic! And manta rays and orcas have such regal black and white patterns.
What fish I'd be? Probably a manta ray (known to be curious and clever) or whale shark (gentle giants - and yes, my interest in these two does come from how I identify with them highly). And if we're including other sea creatures, totally a porpoise (shy but intelligent) or octopus (similar to manta rays, personality-wise). How about you?
........ probably ...?? ????? XD (if you just google "water reflection lines" you see the lines, but idk if its just because its water or the lines)
yeesss draw all the sea animals !! and betta fish are so pretty?? have you seen all the tail types?? AND THIS BETTA AND THIS ONE ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AHHHHH!! makes me wanna make a fish-based OC or something, haha XD and tbh i dont draw enough animals in general, let alone water itself im missing out
Ooh, I had no clue there were different tail types!!! And yesss those betta fish are gorgeous!!! I'm quite partial to this, this, this, and this betta fish, though every betta fish is beautiful in its own way. Their fins are so wispy and beautiful!!!
I'm trying to sketch more animals, though I'm nowhere near ready to start painting or colouring them. And yes, water (and fire, come to think of it) is so fun to draw!!!
... What. Is. That.
I think I've only coloured fire twice, but once was against a dark background, and I loved it. I should do that again!!! It would be a warm colour scheme!!! (I've had enough of cool colours, can you tell?)
But where did it come from --
No, it's not XD I generally don't ever draw water or fire or plants or anything besides the character themselves unless I'm convinced a piece won't work without those things, and since I default to busts so often, I don't feel the need to add anything extra like that.
I remembered where I recognised the crab from!!! My dad showed me this music video!!!
Aww, that's adorable!!!
