Animal Wednesday - fishes


I call this "Fish with Funny lips". Combination watercolor, and colored pencils and Inktense pencils. The lips - well, I despair of them - next time they will be better.
The top post is "auto correct color" in Photoshop. The one below is no autocorrect. Which one do you like better?

HAW (fishy version) to all the animal lovers out there

I like the fish with the enhanced hues. The fish is great, even the lips. I will be looking at fish lips a little closer from now on.

Lots of fish swimming around today! I like them both. They each have their special qualities.

Lovely...the colors are just what I think of when I think watercolors. I think I like the enhanced one too. An the lips...I'll have to say I haven't looked at a fish in a while close up but think that rainbow trout have lips and salmon almost have beaks...not that I could draw either! Is the fish either one or just a fish of your imagination (sans legs, of course?)

OOooh, I think fish are a good subject for you!
The original one is wonderful in it's muted colors, including the background. I think the "color enhanced" one pops because it also washed out the background. Both look really, really good!!
I think the new WC's are happy in your hands :)
HAW!!!

I like both, but I think I like the original the best. Water is muted environment.

HAW!

I like the blue fish best, top one.
Both are nice however...love the drooping tail and the fat lips. This fish has personality.
