Bettas in graphite

These are two of my fish that I did in graphite.

Graphite REM35.jpg

This is my crowntail, REM. The first of my bettas I've ever drawn like this.

Graphite Jack23.jpg

And my double tail, Jack. He won a silver key in the scholastic art competition.

Thanks for viewing, apology for taking bad pics (no scanner).

Great job! I always wanted to do graphite press in art in high school but my class did clay modelling instead! ^.^ You're a really good artist :)

Thanks guys! :) It's really nice to be appreciated and especially nice of you to recognize that they're fancy BETTA fish (ha ha, some amateur to general fish called them goldfish, then later angelfish).
Sometimes, other artists who see my stuff aren't very nice. Personally, I think they love to step on other aspiring artists and try to crush their self esteem. That's a sick thing to do.
