First Betta Fish Piece

Hello all,

I've come out from my lurking to share an illustration I just finished of my boy Van Goghy. I enjoy drawing animals but this is my first aquatic creature I've tried to draw. I had a lot of fun doing it and I hope you guys like it.



Thanks for looking!

CT red/orange/blue/white/peach male

Thank you guys I really appreciate it!

mhwc56: I painted the entire piece in Photoshop which makes the work digital art. Thank you for the compliment and for asking.
