Haha, sorry, I mean paint on a canvas, not paint the actual fish, of course.

I'm not a good painter, it's just a hobby, but I just wondered if anyone else painted their tanks/fish/plants. This is my best attempt, oil on canvas, and not quite finished. Takes forever to dry in the humidity in Queensland... the guppy isn't finished yet.

I'm not a very good photographer either! It looks better in real life. I don't do real life imitation, this isn't even how my tank looks, just an impression. This fish has just died, so its become a bit of a memorial now... Sad

That's good Smile the layering and shadowing is good, and the layout and color scheme is gorgeous!

I have painted a Betta(not one of my own), I have also done black and white pencil drawings of two Angel fish that I had a while back, and an incomplete full color pencil drawing of a hybrid African cichlid that I currently own.







Water color with some Prismacolor.

Thanks Danikins! The Angels are my favorite too.
