Deepsea food by Ruth-Tay Deepsea food by Ruth-Tay
I wanted to draw a deepsea fish for a week. Because they look so alien! But I didn't get a cool idea for its concept till this night. I made it cartonish. I usually don't do that. But I tried it out and it came out great! I really enjoyed drawing its teeth and face! And the glowies are fun too!

Only 3 hours work! All drawn in Photoshop.

Very nice! I love angler fish. The other fish looks a bit odd -- don't think I've ever seen a fish with a square mouth. But still a gorgeous shot.

I didn't spend as much time on the other fish as on the angler fish.

Very nice. I just finished a semester of "exploring the deep sea" so seeing this just made me have to click it. The expression on the fish is great. The little one really looks intrigued and the other so ready for his midnight snack. :giggle:

They are. So many cool things. I suggest looking them up. There's a book about it "deep ocean journeys" by cindy lee van dover. It's only 175 pages and it's a great book about the animals and the environment in which they live. I encourage reading the book. :nod:

ha. Very nice I like this one alot. I like the crazy look on the tiny fish, as if it went in to take a bite and at the last second realized it was in mortal danger

It's not a stock, i drew it myself. I used some brushes for the texure on the skin.

The fish is an angler fish, i made a cartoon like version of the real life fish.

I like the glow and the teeth much, the look so sharp.
