Smile True Dorkdome - 3D Betta Fish

By trade, I am a relaxed, self employed 3-D modeler and illustrator. I've worked professionally and I now enjoy a laid back lifestyle working as I please artistically while I take care of pets with a local pet sitting company.

While working on other things, I decided my new found love for betta fish should influence some of my work and thusly... that's what has happened. :)

I intend to make a little breeding game with these guys. I referenced a fish I found on aquabid and one I saw in petco that I really, really, really wanted but don't have space for. :/

Feel free to critique! I can take it, as long as you're constructive and polite. :)

That's pretty freakin good.

I'm no 3D artist (as I can't afford to buy/play around with 3D programs), but I'm guessing you can't put the ventrals close together at the base? I mean... they kinda look like legs. xD

Really though, this is awesome. Halfmoon, I take it?

I honestly hadn't noticed the ventrals' spot they came from. I can totally put them coming out together from the base. Thank you for pointing that out!

And yes, the one I saw at petco was a halfmoon. F---ing gorgeous halfmoon. .___. I want it. Ugh.

Bowchicka wow wowwww, what kinda game is thhaatt?! ;P

Haha, hes cute.

The ventrals, yes, do come from the spot under the head. Think of it like an upsiodeown triangle from their eyes, (the base), whos point is where the fins go.

The other thing is their mouths arent really where you think theyd be, theyre on the top of the snout-looking part of the face. In almost a permanent frown, this help them nom food at the surface of the water.
