Rusty artist in need of practice: 5 free drawings, anyone?

Hi guys,

I have been severely lacking in inspiration lately and I'm getting kind of rusty. Would any of you let me sketch your bettas for practice? I can do black and white or colour (only traditional art though, I don't have Photoshop on my new laptop). It will be entirely up to you. Thank you.

Here is some of my recent stuff (sorry, I have no betta drawings.).

Black and white:



Colour:

you could practice on Archi, if you'd like. I have others if you need different types, an EE roundtail, a marbeleized koi, and another VT boy.



I love your style. I wish mine were that nice and neat. Everything I draw looks "cuddly".

Thank you, Archi is perfectly fine. I just want to draw and break the cycle of unproductiveness I have been in lately. Would you like the sketch in colour or black and white? I have tomorrow free so you can expect it done by then.

Oh, I don't know about clean. The lovely thing about working with pen is I can cover up mistakes by thickening and shading over stuff. xD

Apparently I dont have any recent pictures of my deceased betta- He marbled so any old pictures are not what he was. Maybe I can find them on my camera.
Here is my current one. The second is more for tail coloration purposes :)

Skyewillow: There! My first betta drawing ever. Sorry, the scales are really wonky. And my scanner app ruined the colours. I'll try to fix it.



I am slowly working through everyone else's bettas. Expect them soon. (:

My fiance and I love it! I think I'll need to print this out and frame it on the desk.
You do a much better job with the scales than I ever do! I'm also glad that we could help you practice.

Thank you so very much! ^_^
