Flying Fish by silentkitty Flying Fish by silentkitty
:|

The only reason I am submitting this piece is because it took me ten hours to finish. Why would such a simple thing take me so much time, you ask? Because, apparently, I have completely forgotten how to use Illustrator and I had to figure everything out all over again. There used to be bubbles in the background, but I couldn't get the damn reflections right, so now the fish is flying. DEAL WITH IT.

:o =p

Very good fishie. I like the fins and the colors. Maybe he's just taking a big flying leap. :)
I hate when I forget how to do things in a program. Then I have to relearn everything all over again and as you've pointed out, that can take a looong time.

I do love this piece, the fish made me smile... not really because it was flying, but because it was of a brighter nature than most things have been lately.

Great fishy, looks a little oriental :D, love the transparent fins and tail, and I think it looks better flying makes it look more surreal.

Nice picture.


I have to ask, though: in your opinion does good art constitute the amount of time it took to make it?

No, of course not.

I'm usually just curious how long it takes other people to create pieces, so I usually say how long a piece took me for those that might be interested.
