fighting fish of the underwater pitfighting tournament.
there's a simple idea of a little fighting fish beating up big brutes. I might make more of a series of little fishes.
again exploring ideas of colors and style. It was a wise idea to pick Siamese fighting fish because they are so colorful easy to work with it and design a backdrop that complements their colors
I'm awfully insecure how I try something new, so there's about 4 different layers here, on the kirby dots, the glow in the background and each element.
masking was used to make the lines in the action a white splat over the face the show where the fish is impacting.
adding simple font with font bending effects to fallow along with the movement
this was a fun piece to work on, expressing my own sense of humor and personality. I hope to make more of these fishes in the future.
