Big Fish Little Fish by zilla774 Big Fish Little Fish by zilla774
this was a sketch i did this afternoon based on the phrase "big fish in a small pond"

I just liked the idea of two fish, a big one in a small pond and a small one in a huge bowl.

Sketched in Photoshop. Took me about 3 hours start to finish in one sitting.

many thanks to =maxwell-heza for the crits.

oh and dont be too harsh on the bowl. It's the first time I've ever done a glass bowl. Or caustics for that matter.

I like the contrast between the unhappy big fish and the simple small fish in this picture. They go well with each other.

I love how impassive the big fish appears. Well, either that or he's very surprised. Nonetheless, the lighting in this picture is gorgeous, it really makes the scene that much better.
