Talking Betta Mermaid

er... mer-man, rather. xD

so, i enjoy drawing bettas as humans, and merpeople. i dunno why, but i do. :d i recently drew TWO betta merpeople, and figured i'd share them.

but, they're not done. >.>; i have a photo of the WIP for one, that i'll post in a bit. but, i was wondering if people would like their bettas to be drawn as merpeople? :3

(also, is selling art allowed on here?)

Edit: http://i56.tinypic.com/2di2a6u.jpg

i think it'd be too large to post on here, so there's the link to my WIP. it's a betta merboy, being all unhappy in a bowl. the base for the MerPeople i'd draw, would be that base, just not in the bowl, or being unhappy.

I really like your drawing, particularly his face and the way he's laying. I think it would be a lot of fun to have bettas drawn as merpeople! What a unique twist. :)

that'd be cool...have him facing the wall with his fists clenched being all rawr

I'd imagine flary-gills being like, under his jawbone (pretty much where they are on a betta <o.O>)

I actually started doodling betta-people a little myself...but not merpeople...they were more like anthropomorphic bettas =3

x3 i'm not good enough to do all that, now. :d i'm lucky he turned out as good as he did! whenever i draw them as just humans, they're in Japanese-style Kimono(to represent the colors and fins. :3).

i have another, more Chibi-anime style, of a betta girl in a bottle, looking all... upset. :< cause, we all know Bettas hate being decorations.
