First time drawing a betta...

Uggh something is wrong with it! I can't exactly find what is it, I put on the best quick skin so you guys can see the lines better... I know the lips are extremely weird, but I can't bother to try to fix again, I spent over 1 hour trying to fix it already T_T









Cus I'm fixing it first before colouring it :V


Halp! >_>

I'm leaving it online on livestream meanwhile:

It looks great! The only thing I see that's slightly 'off' is that the eyes are a little big, but that could be a styling choice! Really - well done!

I would need more pictures of your boy to properly comment, but I would definitely say proportions are a bit off. The mouth on the model looks enormous compared to the photo, but it could be the angle.

The body looks a bit short, but again it's a proportion issue...the pectoral (side) fins also don't just...uhh stick out? They're more like a very small singular area on the side of the body and fan out, gradually growing exponentially larger in size (as seen on the picture of your boy)

Other than that, I like it! The pose is very nice! Is this 3DSMax?

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

Nah, zbrush, never really tried 3ds tbh,, And yes, the body is quite "Squished" but that's more intentional, as like the fins are all "fat" :P

The lips are indeed wrong and I have no intention to fix it (anymore) >_>! So stay wrong it will lol!

About the pectorals... hmmm I might be able to fix that. xD

That's me on the photo alright.

very neat!! I've never heard of that program before (zbrush). It's a 3d animation for your computer?? I like the way you stylized the betta, it makes it look unique, and fun! :D Great job!

No fishies for me right now... expecting a baby in June 2013!

yah, zbrush is more used for modeling, although it can rig, uv map and animate.. never tried though xD

but the program is quite small if you like, is around 100-200mb I think, just don't go subdividing the mesh long enough or you will burst your pc's memory! XD!
