The Koi Painting

Okay, I like fish. A lot. I know I draw/paint/comic them too much as it is. But I got this idea for a drawing and it didn't go away, so I'm doing a koi painting.


It started as a scribbly sketch which lead to this clearer drawing...


And then I lightboxed it and made a watercolor. But it wasn't enough...


And now I'm doing an acrylic painting, shown here in progress.

It's been super fun to dive in with paints again, the precision and effect that's possible is so much better than computer. I think it's getting close to completion, and I'll have a nice scan of it when it is!

See you later, space cowboy.
