The Swim by ChocolatePanda The Swim by ChocolatePanda
I was finally motivated to create a new artwork in photoshop with my noob skills. I'm pretty happy about the way it turned out! MANY, many thanks to my friend for her advices when creating this piece.

Edit: Thank you to all those who enjoy my piece! :D

The tails remind me of fairy wings ^^ I love the simplicity of the ripples, it was a good choice to make them that way :D Good luck to you and the rest of us semi-finalists!

You don't to draw well to doodle though. It's really basically free-style. You can do it! :)

Cool minimalist approach! The ripples remind me of speakers, and the trailing lines remind me of a music sheet, which adds a whole new sensory element to the piece. I also like how their fins and the edges of their bodies are translucent. That's a very cool fishy element. Nice job on their patterns and good luck in the contest!
