koi fishies by Novawuff koi fishies by Novawuff
rightio then,
this is a japan relief commish for :iconmywill1330: for her auntie, I believe.
I realize this is more than just a "sketch", but then again, she's waited just about a year, so I figured going the extra mile was excused.

the fishies and half the background are hand painted, while the other half of the background is some clever photo manipulation. I used a photo i took on my honeymoon in florida, over 6 years ago. :D

This is lovely! Most of the time I shy away from mixed media images featuring actual photographs, but until I read your description, I honestly couldn't tell there was anything real in it. Beautiful painting with lots of dimension. Just gorgeous! :)

Great piece! I thought there's way more to the photo manipulation then only some little part of the background (the reflection, I believe) - those fishes are looking amazingly real, so is the rest of the picture, I thought it's all a photography!

Wow, that's something. The fish look like a photo, probably also thanks to the wavy blur, that makes them look like they're really in the water. I also like their pattern very much. Did you used a photo as a reference for it or did you make the patterns up?
Anyway, this picture is brilliant :love:

i had maybe a dozen different photos of koi...and we also have them in our fish tank ^^ I tried my best not to follow any one photo too closely (something i'm infamous for) so i'd have my own unique fishies... for all i know, i made a pattern that doesn't even exist irl. o.o
after painting them normally, i did run a couple PS filters over them (which made me cringe, to see all my pretty work all distorted) which really helped with the underwaterness. heee.
glad you like!
