I'll be finishing yours and Janan's either tonight or tomorrow, Lucid. Need to finish my end of the year project for a class. I'm such a procastinator. D:

No not good enough. lol

But seriously though I love it! youve got his colour perfectly down to the last stripe on his dorsal . You managed to get all the silvery, goldy, purpley hues of his copper. Its exactly him, even his first short anal rays.
Thank you so much
Its my desktop on my laptop now lol

Thank you! And you're welcome. :) He was a challenging fish to draw, especially with the shape of his fins. I was surprised I managed to achieve that copper colour. It was originally just a plain blue grey and looked flat. Then, I added some white and a darker grey and the metallic sheen really started to come out. I truly learned a lot from colouring him and the other bettas before him.

You got his fins really well even all the ridges and rays. Glad he was a good fish to pratice on :) Yeah I think the layering of colours really made his colours pop, every scale is a slightly different shade form its neighbours which is exactly how his scales look especially, when the light hits them
What do you use to colour them?

The base was a few layers of Rose Art blue grey. I layered some Prismacolour white on top of random scales. Then, I took a Rose Art dark grey, black, and a blue and layered that on top of the white. That created the illusion of the different scales.

Lucid and Janan's drawings are almost finished. Check back later in the evening and they will be posted. Thank you. :)

*blushes* Thank you, Lucid.

Getting colour on Sparta took much longer than I expected... Janan, yours is still WIP with colouring left. Sorry. ><
