A classmate asked if I'd help her create a character for one of her 3D animation projects. She wanted him very smooth, very simple. I left him like this thinking it might be easier for her then to create him in 3D.
I've been wanting to create some sort of creature and in looking for inspiration I came across some great pictures of Betta fish. I loved the fullness and colors of their fins, so I decided to start from there.
