Another one of my favourite fish, yet I've never kept them. I think there's just something magical about the colour blue in aquarium fish, and the frontosa outshines any other in that respect.

Your drawings are amazing!!
I’m not sure if I’m allowed or if you’d even be interested....but....I wouldn’t mind commissioning you for a zebra pleco drawing. I would pay you for your work and pay for the shipping to Canada. I know your going to say but shipping is too much but I assure you I’m not really concerned with cost of shipping.

I would love to have something to frame for my non existent fish room lol

How old are you? It’s amazing!
Thank you, I am 53 years young!

Each drawing gets better than the last one, looks like you are getting back into the groove now
Yeah, it's coming back to me now, lol. The new prismacolor pencils I've got are nothing like I've ever used before. Very vibrant, heavily pigmented but extremely waxy. I'm having to learn all over again about grading, layering, blending and such.

I'm slowly working my way up to what I consider to be an extremely difficult piece, a vieja synspilum/melanura in full breeding dress. It's just a rainbow with fins basically, lol. Blending is key with a piece like that.

That is my goal at the minute but I've got a few more to do before I attempt that one.
