Very nice.
I can't remember if I've asked this already, but do you prefer working on one layer, and is it for a reason? I want to draw on one layer but I fear screwing up.

I just prefer working on one layer for personal reasons. Having too many confuse me, and I like the idea of trying to paint as "traditionally as possible" through a digital medium. Plus it's good practice once I get back to traditional art again.

A Samurai with fish? That's an interesting concept. I would love more of the backstory to find out how he managed to have those fish fight with him. A fish god in disguise as a samurai? I don't know.

I love the colors and the fish are an interesting addition to the painting. Thankfully the fish only enhance the drawing instead of taking it away or just being there randomly for no reason at all. They look as if they were meant to be there instead of a silly idea one would just jolt down and shrug it off. The colors are bright, but they have a dark undertone to it, which is great for this picture. I'm amazed at your talent again and again. I can't find a mistake here yet, that's probably because I have more of an eye for fanart mistakes than original art mistakes XD.

Btw: The eyes are a fantastic feature. I love how bright they are.

:wow: this is breathtakingly beautiful. I love how I can feel the relaxing mood and the fish are beautiful. I love how you've blended the colors well and I like how the skin is very well colored and shaded.

I have the feeling of inspiration in this amazing work of yours. :heart:

ooops...I read your comment wrong: I thought it said "a samurai fighting with his Siamese fighting fish" and I thought "yes, because Siamese fighting fish are so tough" :XD:

He's pretty (perhaps a little too pretty though, sorta looks more female to me ^^;) But a great job nonetheless, the inclusion of the Siamese Fighting fish is something I've never seen before even though they fit the personality very well :D

Don't worry I agree with you there. :XD:! I was on the borderline of making the character into a female, but then I dunno what happened afterwards. :B

Thanks! <3
