not really. i used to draw a fair bit, but i lacked motivation for a long time. just getting back into it.



(if i'm honest, i copied (note: copied, not traced, as some people seem to think) the fish and the uppermost flower from elsewhere. i altered the shape of the fish though, made him a bit longer and thinner. the other flower and the water are made up)

Are you going to design the colour yourself?

I reckon that the lower flower should be on an angle similar to the upper flower rather than looked at from straight above and I reckon the twisty bit of the fish (urrr, fish) needs to be a bit fatter.

Having said that, I can't draw AT ALL so feel free to ignore all of that.

no no, any input is appreciated and i agree. i think i'm gonna change the flowers completely though, go for the more traditional type lillies. but i don't know. the joys of drawing!

Nah, the first one is better. The only thing I'd say is that the flower in the bottom right corner of the first one you should replace with one of the flowers in the new one you did. Other than that I'd say the first one is great. I want to see how they look with colour though.

I like it. Although I think you should colour the first picture too and see how that looks. Also maybe incorporate one of the big lilies from the top picture into the bottom one. I think with the mixture of different flowers it'd look sweet.


P.S: The colours are well nice. :)

cheers jess :)


i think i'll try the upper flower from the first design in place of the middle one from the new design. i'm also not sure about the green colouring. i definitely prefer the new water though.

I like the green, it's bit more original compared to some koi designs I've seen, although I'm not sure how well green would work on your skin. It might fade weirdly. ?(
I'm also rather jealous of you for being able to draw so well! Hmmph!

well cheers, but i'm not that good. i was watching miami ink the other day and those guys can turn out something ten times better than that in a tenth of the time. the bastards. practice makes perfect though, and it gives me something to do of an evening!

I'd change the bit of water near it's mouth. It makes it look like it has been sick.

Good drawing though.
