Betta portraits!

I have been drawing pet (dog/cat) portraits for a while now... and I have been inspired by some of the great artists on this site!!
So, I am going to try my hand at betta drawing! Woohoo!
I'll update as I go. Stay tuned, folks.

I have... 4m/5f bettas, two cats, one dog, one rat, and a husband... ;]

Well, I got my first quick sketch done... I'm feeling a little discouraged, lol.
I underestimated how tricky bettas are to draw!!

Anyway, what do you all think?
Keep in mind, it's just a *rough* sketch and it's meant to be cartoony...

Wow, that's actually really good!

And cartoony? I say it's more on the realistic side, though it's impossible for me to change my style to realistic. xD So maybe it's just how it looks to me. Fantastic, otherwise!

Aw, thanks!

I usually do tattoo/cartoon styles.
The perfectionist-within comes out in a bad way when I try to draw realistically! lol

Ah yes... An artist is their own worst critic! :D
I know I am... people say modesty, I say the finished product still needs work! lol

So you are very welcome. And in all honesty, you did a great job. c:

Edit: And your handwriting... I envy how pretty it looks xD

Thanks again XD

I did another quicky sketch... this time it's of my VT, Ryo. He gets a little overly excited during feeding time... I thought it'd be cute to draw

NOMS! lol
