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:

I thought this was a photo until I spotted the tiger. :XD: Your environments are simply amazing - a stunning drawing indeed!

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:
