This art piece is really amazing first off I can tell you now I can't draw that xD anyway it's really neat and has really clear lines to see what's fish and what's water and I like that you didn't just draw the two fish but the water around it. I also like the originality of the piece and that I know what your drawing instead of guessing and getting it wrong. I would love to see this shaded to help with this picture but my overall writing I just wanna say great work and keep doing what your doing it's great! C:
What do you think?

it is so cute <3 i love Koi fish but ever since that the last avatar or something like that i have always been afraid that the moon will go out or something XD but its just an episode that no one should watch.... enough about me ok so the technique is what I'm really looking for since I'm asian i love the ones that are or looking like something from china but I really like this one too it looks unique and I love it for that reason! what I also like is the way the koi fish and that water looks like

this looks really good =D

except for the minor detail that it means bad luck if a koi fish swims downward on a tattoo ^^;
like a horseshoe should have the opening upwards >.>

The thing is I don't believe in bad luck, hence why one of the first tattoos I'm going to get is going is peacock feathers. Also why I have a vase full of them right in front of me, Lol.

It gets reflected in my art too.

Thanks :hug:

as long as you make the tattoo design for yourself, like now, it doesn't matter =)

well, if I got a tattoo I would want the artist to know about those kind of things and tell me. So I don't get a tattoo that is "wrong".

Yeah that's the thing. If this was a commission during the sketching time I would have asked if they were a strong believer in bad luck. Or if they thought that koi swimming upside down was bad luck, you have to make sure the please the customer ;)

koi swimming upside down means bad luck in some asian countries. So it's more a matter if they beleive in bad luck or not.
