New WIP

I decided that since the first image I posted was rubbish, I'd start anew and do a proper portfolio-quality pic. I got photos of Ram at the store, and here they are in a collaged form:


I'm not sure if some of his coloring, especially around the head and front fins and stuff where it's patchy and gray, is natural coloring or a sign of sickness, as I am uneducated in that field of betta biology as of the moment. But you can see why I named him Ram, yes?

Anyways, I sketched the beginnings of the new image, and have begun cleaning up the lines. My goal is to make a pic good enough to print out and hang on the wall, as I have a frame going spare.

The head coloration is normal. He has what are called dragon scales, a think set of scales that are a different color than the body almost always. Nice drawing! You gave him a lot of personality.

Oh good, I didn't want to be worried he was sick. And thanks! I think lining and coloring the fins will be the most challenging task in the progress of this picture.

Usually commissions are like cost of supplies plus at least minimum wage per hour it took to draw, plus cost of packaging and shipping... so depending on where you are and how much minimum wage is and how long you typically spend on these it might be a good formula for figuring out a decent commission price ;)

I would totally want a commission from you of my two boys if you did offer to do them, I just have to set up a new paypal as my old one is way out of date... lol adorable drawing!
