Free Betta Drawings

Hi all! I've been meaning to post this for awhile now, but just haven't gotten around to it-I'm looking to improve my skills in drawing and coloring bettas. I can only get so much practice in drawing my two boys though, so if anyone wants a free drawing of their betta(s) just post here. I will probably go back and forth between using oil pastel and watercolor (more comfortable with oil pastel, but I want to work on my watercolor techniques too).

Here's an example of a quick betta drawing of my boy, Merlin:


And just to reassure you that I'm not half-bad with oil pastel when I take my time:



As I said, I'm going to do some in watercolor too, but I don't have any examples of aquatic creatures in that medium. If you do want a specific medium for your betta to be done in (oil pastel or watercolor) just say so in your post!

I'd love a watercolor if you'd like to use my fish as your test subject.

I should also ask, would you like a realistic background or a more abstract/fantasy sort of background?

Ohh just whatever you feel fits with your medium. :)

Your betta definitely provided a challenge & learning experience with how the colors are! I hope you like how the painting turned out!
