What do you think?

Up until recently I hadn't drawn anything for about 5 years. However I decided to draw a betta for someone who helped me out by sending me medications for my bettas when one of them got sick a while ago. I am really glad that I did this pic because it got me back into drawing and I've started a picture of some of my budgies now which is working out really well. Probably be ages before I finish it though as I don't have much spare time right now. Anyway here is a pic of the drawing I did of Mango one of my bettas, I would love some feedback.

Don't put away your sketch book again! It's a shame to stop drawing when you have SO much talent. As long as it's something you enjoy keep drawing! You are an amazing artist!!!

Okay found some photos of some pictures I did several years ago and though I would share them, by no means by best work but they are okay.

OK? Please, you are much better than 'ok'. I know an artist is hard on themselves, but you have to be able to see that in the first pic of your cat it looks like he's ready to come off the paper and get some attention. You work is very realistic and wonderful, don't discredit the talent you have!

Great stuff. The scales on the betta look to be at some weird angles, but your other drawings are very realistic.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.
