Swimmin' with the Fishies by Enaxn Swimmin' with the Fishies by Enaxn
EDIT oh god hate all the yellow filters. I'll change it tomorrow morning yololol

Oh god my titles. Lmfaooooo.

Omg can I submit it in time before work I DON'T KNOOOOOOW.

ANYWAY this is a full-image commission for Veskar on FA! :heart:. He asked for his tiger character to be swimming in the reefs specifically from Cozumel, Mexico, because he wanted to remember a trip he took there in February. So all the reefy stuff and all the fish (40 SPECIES OF FISH LMAO) were carefully references from charts and photos from the area and drawn in excruciating amounts of detail lolol. No fish brushes. Or bubble brushes. I actually don't think I used any brushes, barring the texture brush from ~Kecky's set that I use for basically everything. YOU GET THAT FISH, VESKAR. GO GET IT GO.

BUT ANYWAY YES I was excited to submit this, so it's before he approves, so barring any tweaks from Veskar, it's done! I have really minimal amounts of experience with both anthros AND anything reefy, so this was a challenge!

ANYWAY now I really AM late lololol thanks for looking friends! :heart:

Anthro tigers ruin the photo quality of everything.  They have a lot of nerve <__<.  And THANK YOU! Environments are the most fun to do I swear it.

OMG, this is... all the detail. :omg:

This is why I love your art, you put so much work into everything in the picture. I can look at one of your pieces a hundred times and discover something new in it each time. Wonderful work! :heart:

This is admittedly a SUPER detailed thing.  Mostly because I could sneak fun things like eels and dolphin shadows in it and no one would notice ehehe.  And reefs are SO COMPLICATED the crazy little things! Ahhhhh thank you so much for the delicious comment! Ilu this many! :heart:

This perspective is really eye-catching! The roll of the wave is just so perfect with the rippling water texture just beneath it. There's just so much detail that every time I look again I find something new to marvel at. I can't even imagine how long it took just to do the fish! The different textures and lighting techniques you used look great. There's something about the tail splash which makes it my favorite part -- I love how you drew the movement of the water. There's even a little beach towel set-up to the right -- cute!
You did an amazing job!

WOW Anne. Really neat perspective you've taken here! The blurriness of the plants in the foreground is a really nice touch that makes this view even more realistic! Combined with all of the amazing details of the coral and the fish (still can't believe you painted 40 different kinds of fish 8|), this pic is just gorgeous! Also, hell Mr eel. XD
You tackled the underside of the water like a pro! Water surfaces can be so difficult to color, but you've totally pulled it off! Wow, just wow....

So is making that wavey water reflection on the objects under the water and gah water. It's stupid. Thank you so much Arfy my love! :heart::heart:

Thank you! And the water was SUPER annoying lolol. It helps if you add some light beamies and if you do the underside of the water (which is really hard and I nee dot figure out how it's done), and just add a bunch of bubbles and sparkles and blah blah. It isn't too bad! :heart:
