Some drawings I have done!

I did a project for my color theory class about the relation between gender and color. It has more than just bettas, but they were the inspiration for the idea...


Oh dear! I didn't think the images would stay so large! I'm used to forums that resize the images, maybe it's just my computer? Oh well.. sorry!

Thank you! I'm glad you think so XD that was the point of the assignment!

Sadly I knew nothing about Bettas at the time other than "Boys are flashy and colorful with big fins!" so looking back I can see many places that could have been done better, but oh well! Maybe someday I'll do more betta drawings that will be more accurate!

Your chameleons are amazing!! I LOVE drawing those guys (: I actually think they're fairly easy to draw, but yours are... stunning! The colors are perfect (: The first one is just... IN YOUR FACE colorful :D
I like the comparisons... looks like a fun project. It makes me rethink about my belief that males are prettier... looking at your female page, I think they look stunning, too!

I tried to make the female side based on art nouveau.. Muted colors can be GORGEOUS when done right! And I think the natural girls are beautiful! Most of them just have to be better hidden to save their babies!

Hehe, I chose almost entirely Birds of Paradise, they are fun XD and chameleons ARE fun to draw!!

These drawings are what got me into wanting a betta! I learned about how many different colors they could be.. instead of just blue or red! The idea of a purple or yellow betta intrigued me... :]

What medium is it? Watercolor?

Also, I'm really impressed with the male figure. Nice understanding of facial and cranial features.
