9 Toes Beach Club

Ever since I was young I've had somewhat of a water phobia. Knowing fish like the 'Angler Fish' lurk in the deepest parts of the Oceans waiting to bit my toes off doesn't make me want to go swimming anytime soon. Lakes are fine and I love Sea-Dooing but I still prefer the non-infested chlorinated variety swimming hole.

It's amazing the variety of fish there are and these puppies are stinking scary looking in real life. God sure does have an incredible portfolio and imagination.

This is great. I love the style! I had sort of a similar idea for IF but didn't quite know how to excecute it. You pulled it off brilliantly. I don't know what I'm going to do now...

A Picasso fish, I think.
Very fine. Congratulations.

I always found pictures of angler fish scary when I was a kid. Yours retains the spooky feeling, but with a super-cool style. I like how the pointy-ness of his teeth are echoed in his spiny fins.

He looks nasty and sharp teethed, wouldn't want to meet one when swimming. Nice work with colours and drawing.
