Muay-Thai Betta

My first painting of a betta! :) I never would have guessed it'd turn out so, erm, strange.

I decided to model him after my own betta, Levi, who is one fiesty mofo. (He's my avatar.)
Muay-Thai is a style of boxing. :D WAAAAYAH! I also decided to use a limited palette for this piece! http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/...ught_Provoking

Amazing! Love what you did with the anatomy (the head and tail placement/ angle), I also loved the flow of the movement! What program did you use for it?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!

It is a fighting style built on flexibility basically. It is my favorite! Muay Thai is much like kickboxing, and BJJ is kind of like wrestling, I guess you could say. A lot of the MMA fighters use it (I am a MMA/UFC nerd... ehehe) and it is probably one of the best fighting tools a fighter can learn.

It is about discipline, stretching, flexibility, and the ability to keep your mind under control in a stressful/difficult position. It is a combat sport, which can be used in nearly any aspect of fighting. To me, any fighter who is well trained in BJJ can get out of any hold.

They must wear a "gee" or "gi" which is basically a karate uniform. BUT, it can come in many different colors. It is not restriced to white.

One of my favorite fighters, BJ Penn, has basically mastered the art of BJJ.

^ In this position, if he pulls harder (you extend your legs and it pulls his arm) it can dislocate the shoulder or if he twists snaps the arm.

^ Choke hold which can literally suffocate someone. If you are holding properly, they cannot get you off in this position.

Very short clip showing his flexibility after mastering BJJ...

The flexibility, strength, mind visial, etc apart of being into BJJ... (another short clip)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXoqf...eature=related

BJJ is a sport made for someone smaller, or perhaps weaker, to over-come a larger, stronger, bigger opponent.

Thank you! I used Painter X exclusively, and it was painted with my Wacom Graphire tablet.
