Hi guys,

I have been severely lacking in inspiration lately and I'm getting kind of rusty. Would any of you let me sketch your bettas for practice? I can do black and white or colour (only traditional art though, I don't have Photoshop on my new laptop). It will be entirely up to you. Thank you.

Here is some of my recent stuff (sorry, I have no betta drawings.).

Black and white:



Colour:

you could practice on Archi, if you'd like. I have others if you need different types, an EE roundtail, a marbeleized koi, and another VT boy.



I love your style. I wish mine were that nice and neat. Everything I draw looks "cuddly". :)

Thank you, Archi is perfectly fine. I just want to draw and break the cycle of unproductiveness I have been in lately. Would you like the sketch in colour or black and white? I have tomorrow free so you can expect it done by then.

Oh, I don't know about clean. The lovely thing about working with pen is I can cover up mistakes by thickening and shading over stuff. xD

Wow, these are amazing! Love the colored one especially, it's beautiful <3
If you'd like, you can draw my boy Aether. I don't mind if you do black and white or color, just have at him <3

Skyewillow: There! My first betta drawing ever. Sorry, the scales are really wonky. And my scanner app ruined the colours. I'll try to fix it.



I am slowly working through everyone else's bettas. Expect them soon. :)

My fiance and I love it! I think I'll need to print this out and frame it on the desk.
You do a much better job with the scales than I ever do! I'm also glad that we could help you practice.

Thank you so very much! ^_^

No, it's no problem at all. I am very glad you like how it turned out. I was kind of worried I messed it up by angling the body so much. I never knew how hard it was to draw bettas.

Is Archi a girl? I looked at other pictures you posted. She's so cute.

Yup, Archi (short for Archipelago) is my sweet little princess! <3

It actually reminds me a lot of her, she's always poking around, checking things out, so her back is almost constantly angled like that... until I feed her! lol

Awww, adorable. I was at Petsmart again today. I wanted so badly to bring all the female bettas home with me because they don't sell. They were not much larger than my thumbnail and all sick. One had died and was starting to rot and grow mold. But I don't have anywhere to put them. /:

I'm doing the drawings in the order of the responds. Galaxy's Aether is next. I'll finish it today and work on the rest tomorrow.

If you're accepting anymore, you can do Shiseru.

I said five, but that was only because I am currently in the middle of midterms. If you want a drawing from me, I'll be honored to do it. It just might take a while so please bear with me.

Galaxy: Here you go! The blue is actually purple, but it doesn't show up. Let me see tonight if my Canon camera will be able to take a better image.
