fish littles


Howdy everyone, Sophorn here. Hey, Nelson, thanks for the invite!...
This is me aqua-tune things or guys. They are small and they fight and kill guppies, then wear them on their heads. Rusted nails are their choice of weapons because it cuts and cause infections. That's it.

I kinda started out with this drawing... but I liked the colored cartoon above better, I think it's funner (is this even a word) and more risky.

I like the colored version better, too. I saw the nail and laughed...and then I thought of tetanus.

Wow sophorn, really quirky idea and nice colored painting!! :D Very nice, and I like that sponge like texture you applied to the border. Overall, I love it. I'm first in line to buy a dead guppy hat when you sell it. haha

I love this painting. I have to say the muted colors are amazing and the concept made me laugh. The border is nice as was mentioned. I like the simplified forms in the back and the hats are a nice design. I think these guys would love to hunt down my Whuppy Character. It would be like the king of all guppy hunts.

I also agree that the cartoony version above seems more fun. But I also like the webbed feet and hands in the bottom version. I can see the painted version as a cartoon series similar to the Snorks. Very creative idea for the Fish hat too.

...a blurp blurp ! (Great Job!)
