Ahhhhhh those are beautiful :D

I'm afraid you've inadvertently hit my weak spot... pretty fish :O

(of course basically all bettas are pretty, so I end up drawing a lot of fish)

That's it, I'm going to draw these. But first-fish-first-served, so the others will have to have their turn. And it might be a while because right now I have the flu (seriously, immune system? Can you be healthy long enough for me to think straight?) and they've been waiting for like a week. But I will get to you guys!



As for the non-bettas... I have no clue how to draw those

I could take a crack at them, but I'd probably need at least two pics per fish from different angles in order to learn what they look like. I've never been good at just copying pictures exactly. It might look like that's what I'm doing, but what I actually do when I draw is the process I describe in the tutorial linked in my sig, which is quite a bit different and a heck of a lot easier!

(That's why I decided to make it into a tutorial: so that people who were just trying to copy pictures could understand what they were seeing a little bit better.)

Bettas are roughly uniform in shape even if they have lots of individual characteristics, so if I can't see a particular characteristic in one photo, I have a good guess as to what I'm missing. I don't know what's going on with other fish, though, and I also don't have one swimming right in front of me as a rough reference model.

But I will probably try if you give me more pictures. :)

Started Enceladus's sketch 'cause I'm feeling a little better than yesterday, but I feel like it could be better because my hands are still kinda shaky.

Sigh. Later. I want to get him right.

Is he a marble? His coloring is so extravagant :o

Enceladus is done!

Man, talk about detail work. I wanted to get him right though.

I've never drawn a marble before! His coloring is crazy. :O

Iggy's up next on the list. I hope to get him done soon so it's not *too* late for his birthday. :D One goofy birthday hat pic coming up for what can actually be a rather grumpy fish. Adorably grumpy, though. XD Iggy's awesome.

Here's Enceladus. I couldn't stop thinking of his name as "Enchiladas" while I was drawing it, so hopefully he looks like a fish and not a plate of Mexican food.

As always, PM me with your email address if you want a cleaner, high-quality version. Still working on the DeviantArt thing.

Oh my goodness! Thank you!!!!
Of course, I'm okay with waiting! Everyone before me has waited longer and deserve there's first. S'all good.

And oh no!!! Get better! The flu is not fun at all!

Iggy!

Happy B-day, Iggy!

ricepattyfish, I think you mentioned he's really possessive of his snail and likes hanging out on those leaves and glaring at you. (What a character! XD)

It looks like Iggy in the shade vs. Iggy's lit face is remarkably different, color-wise. If both pics are accurate... well, he must be some kind of rainbow fish! I tried to get the color right but I'm not sure.

If I got something wrong on either count, let me know so I can fix it for you. Which wouldn't be difficult or hurt my feelings or anything like that, so don't feel bad about telling me.

Wow. I'm going to find an easier fish to draw--he took a while! But he was a fun one. :3
