Newest try on lineless art.

So in inspiration from my newest Betta, Galileo, I decided to try something that I don't usually touch on. Lineless art. This picture is also currently being used as my Avatar.
I was unable to capture his true shininess and ultimate spectrum of colors, but this was really the first time I actually attempted to digitally paint a fish. I've done dolphins and orcas before, and in that field my skills are quite acute. It's the scales that I need to work on. Plus he looks a little fat, his lips aren't big enough, his tail is too short... I could just go on. :P

Here's the fish.


Here's the art.

Since I was really just winging it, it took a little over an hour. There are still a lot of details that I'm sure I missed.

With the light source coming in from the right, the highlighting should be on the right side of his body, but I love it! Really love the use of a lower opacity and layers with his little fins!
