Hello all! hope everyone is well
I'm an indecisive artist seeking some inspiration and guidance lol feeling creative but having a bit of a block and can't decide what/who to draw so I thought why not ask the people here on fishlore!
I don't have examples of my art currently on my computer but I draw in a stylized/comic book sort of way, hard to explain lol
Anyway, if you'd like your favourite fishy sketched or drawn post a decent quality photo or two of him or her and a short description of their personality on this thread and I'll doodle them for you!
Obviously, I'll need time and if I get a lot of posts I won't be able to draw them all but post away, I'd love to see and hear about your scaly friends anyway!

What a cool idea Your work is pretty amazing!
This is sprinkles. He's very friendly and engaging. He gets excited about food and likes to jump to get my attention.

I like this idea and you're really good!

This is Samson, he's in a tank with three females and every other week he has a new mate and a new batch of fry. He sleeps around, but he's very protective of whichever female he's with and does a great job defending his children and girlfriend from the other fish in the tank.
This is my favourite picture of him, but he wasn't very mature at this point and his fins have grown a bit longer since then.

This is a pic of him now - the lights weren't great so he doesn't look as bright here.

Can I give you more than one?
You can, but I will only draw one of them to keep it fair. So you're better off choosing one these drawings take a few hours and I'll never get through them all if I start accepting multiple lol
