Animal Wednesday - Fish Cards and Fun with Photoshop

I found this old card yesterday - and remembered how much I like/love drawing fanciful fish.  Plus I can always use more cards, so I got out the pencil and watercolors and had at it. 

The first two are old ones - kinda faded and ratty by this time, but I like them. 

This one I did last night and wanted to add blue water in the background. I really didn't like the way it turned out so I turned to my kindergarden skills on photoshop and ......

....cut out the fish and added a different background. I don't love the background colors but the point was to do it all in photoshop...and I did.

These last two didn't get photoshopped, but even loving the "real" watercolor look, this photoshop stuff can be addictive!

It's sunday night but this will have to do for Animal Wednesday - what with Christmas and all.  I still have packages to be mailed out - can you believe it???

Love the fish! But of course, one of my favorite movies is 'The Little Mermaid'!

Your fish are always fun!
Love how that one pops out of the frame!

Wishing you happy holidays again!
