Finished the angler fish finally. He was a nightmare. Those oranges came out all wrong and I had to remove all the color on the fish and redo it. Lesson learned, don't trust gouache until you see it dry. I'm still not 100% happy with it, but it's time to move on.

Nope, nobody is ever 100% happy! That's what drives me forward. Next up, begin working on a new book, something I've been wanting to do for a long time!

I made a quick video outlining my process thus far on a painting I am getting started on right now. Watch out for surprise cats.

Working on a couple of commissions right now, this one's digital, a friend of my mom's dog passed away recently and she asked me to do one of the dog with a toad. Apparently the dog liked toads. Just sent her this, hoping it's done!

Water done. I worked from right to left, dark to light. I may come to regret the decision to do the water first at some point, but I like to live dangerously! I'm calling it a night and working on Mr. Fish tomorrow.

The other commission, a reading light deep sea lantern fish. Color should be interesting.

Sure, I can post more progress tonight. The paper block on the right is the watercolor paper I am using, and I ended up scrapping that one and redoing it. The sketch on the top left is what I am working from. I am still trying to decide if I am going for gouache or watercolors for color.

Lots of sketching going on. I actually finished the color on this one today, but I have to save some surprises for the book!
