it worries me that lacey is fatter than kristie, and kristie is slightly bigger than her, i think she just a chubby girl ;p but thanks, don't worry it doesn't have to be perfect
this is my first drawing for someone on the forum (PC made):

and here is my latest:

though the quality is bad so here is another:

do you eyeball it, or do you take measurements?

All bettas have a basic shape:

And then from there you can add fins based on tail type, I've chosen a Veil Tail



Then you add the fin just behind the gill

Don't forget the ventral fins (I used to forget them)

And then the eye


That is your average Betta, then from there you can do detail work with scales color and physical uniqueness.

I wasn't doing your fish I was just following up with betta lovers post that you don't really need to do measurements to draw fish. They all have the same basic shape and once you learn that bettas will become rather easy to draw for you.

but u offered 2 do my fish and u alreadyy did, idk i was on alot of posts you my have or may not

I prefer to take measurements so i can get the basic shape. and goot poportional ratios

i dont measure EVERYTHING, i measure things like tail length, body length, fin length, head length, and body width
