Wow! So gorgeous, I like all the different textures and patterns. I've neverthought of using different types of scales in one creature but it really looks cool:)

It kind of reminds me of certain  animal depictions in ancient codexes

Thanks! 
I feel this might be lacking a bit comparatively.... those have such a sense of purpose or meaning... 
but thank you, I enjoy the comparison :)

Mysticism is hard to come by, if one doesn't work directly for The Big G like they did.

As a layman's it is impressive.

thanks.... but I can't take credit for patience.... I get obsessed with filling space.... at some point that drive just takes over. :) 

... side note.... I realliy like your gallery ... I faved a few but there is a really nice stylization throughout... and I am fond of your choices- subject matter wise too :)

LOL ... it isn't a matter of patience ... more like obsession.... the drawing drove me. I forgot to eat for about 16 hours because of it :) 
i hated the thing for awhile when it seemed to be controlling me, but were ok now :)

... :) we go to this one Chinese restaraunt and they have a nice Koi tank... I always want to sit by it .... that doesn't make joe very happy because he thinks fish are disgusting, but the fish are amazing to watch.... 
Fish are like birds for me ... I think they hold my interest because they kind of repulse me too..... 
the Koi are shiny and these stunning colors ... I am drawn to the repeated scales, but then they are also really needy and swarm to their food with a viscous passion....

on my my last visit I was admiring one of the fish closely when it turned it's head and its eye was gone .... and I just knew one of the other fish 🐟 ate it.... brutal.... 

but they seem happy together now .......

Nice job on the depth and the scales are very uniform. 
Maybe one-eyed fish aren't very appetizing for Joe :] 
My sister used to have a Koi pond in her yard, it was more like a frog swamp.

:) Thanks, 
it was hard to decide what to keep in and what to let flow out..... I didn't plan it out ahead of time so there are a few places where I think I could have made better choices ... but all in all it was fun... so I'm happy :)

:) it's a little crooked :) but.... 
i planned on it being a bit irregular, but when I was done and stepped back  I was surprised at how goofy it really was :) 

I will just pretend it was intentional :)

Thanks :).... and thanks for your comments earlier. :) 
I think pure obsessiveness drove the background :) it kept me hooked.... I kind of lost a day of my life while filling in all those little circles.... :)

I know THAT feeling, lol  :D  but all that time is not really lost - it's all stored up in there like power in a battery.  It's one of the things that makes your work so rewarding to gaze at :)
