Check out my art

Hey there,

I am relatively new to this forum and haven't posted any pice yet but I will try to show you some pictures of my art. I have only done two bettas and that was a fair few years ago now so I have improved a lot since then but anyway I thought you might like to see them anyway. I use Graphite pencil on paper. Hope you like them and let me know what you think.

Oh my gosh! Those are absolutely beautiful, simply stunning. I have never seen such detailed drawings of a betta before. You are extremely talented, I am amazed at such artwork! If you ever get the chance, I would be honored if you drew one of my bettas.

Rest in Peace: <3

Hey there,

wow, thanks guys, I thought they were a bit rough cause I have improved a lot since then but hey if people like them I am happy If I ever get a chance I will draw you betta lexylex0526 but I am afraid life is hectic at the moment with full time study and other commitments, I haven't drawn in three years because I have been so busy!! I do all animals by the way not just bettas, I can post some of the other animals if you like, let me see....... I have done heaps of drawing but don't have photos of them all so I will see what I can find for you.....

Wow these are amazing! You're so talented at drawing. You really did a good job on those crown tails. I hear they're hard to draw.

You are a really good artist with close attention to detail. I am decent, but I can never get so much detail. The drawings always come out flat with pathetic shading. Your shading is really nice, gives you a sense of how the animal or object is positioned and everything. LOVE IT!

Those are amazing! I'm a pretty decent drawer, but my art is simple and flat compared to yours.
