I really like the expression of the Koi's face, it has it's own wee personality.

Did you do the caudal fin (tail) that way intentionally? Koi's caudal fin go the other way round. Sorry for being pernickity its a great drawing!

The photos I looked at before starting work on this all had really boring tails so I just made it up, wonderful philosophy that - if you can't do it right, do it however the hell you like :)

Yeah that's what I was wondering, I'm designing a koi tattoo just now, much like you I have gone for the option of emphasising expression.

I'm a little stuck, see your drawings have a lot of energy for many reasons, one being the exaggerated fin, but I'm trying to keep mine serene and more realstic. This is all fair enough but I'm straying into the realm of boring very, very easily!

Thanks for the inspiration, thought you'd be angry and say, well fish don't float in mid air and almost scowl at you do they?' :)

yeah fishy fish are the best, beef flavoured fish is just wrong, although the other way round would be worse....

Aww I adore Koi that is lovely. The motion in the piece is great. The colors and the detail in their scales is wonderful.

Lol, cute in a creepy kind of way, I suppose.
That's okay, I tend to find really strange things cute. Then everyone stares at me. Like when I thought GLaDOS was cute. Or something. XD

Now this is very good, especially the left image where the water swirls with a fluidity that feels almost parallel with the shapes of the fishes.

I would imagine those tattoos would have to be a reasonable size to pack in all that detail.

As a stand alone image, the fish work very well. As a tattoo design, it probably wouldn't be to my personal taste, but I'm sure somebody out there would love to have it.

Yeah they were meant to be pretty big, he wanted them to go up his leg above a fish he already has over his ankle.

Thanks for the comment :)
