Koi - Betta hybrid fish by kittahxd Koi - Betta hybrid fish by kittahxd
Thank you, everyone for looking at/faving/commenting on this picture over the years, but I have changed accounts, and thus, will no longer be answering comments here. I'm sorry, but if you need to reach me, I can easily be found at my new account =EtoilesUnlaced. :]




Err...Well. I decided a while ago that I wanted a koi tattoo...But I hadn't been able to find any designs that I liked, so I started to draw them myself. x.o; And um...Apparently I don't like orange and yellow all that much, so they keep turning into Betta/Japanese Fighting Fish...fish. x.x; This one happens to still have koi whisker things.

Pretend like I wasn't too lazy to hook up my scanner, so I DIDN'T just take a picture of it with my camera so the paper looks yellow/grey/dingy and such. Yep. I didn't do that. At all.

A picture of the actual tattoo is here: [link]

::EDIT!!!::
This deviation has been ripped off. So I'm asking as a favour if you see anyone with [link] :+fav:ed, or anyone else with this picture, please point them to this picture or let me know. I'm really glad that so many people like my fishy here, but I really don't want anyone else using it without my permission. I actually have this tattooed on me, and it is not free flash art for anyone who wants it to copy and put into their gallery. Really, I'm a pretty laid back person, and if you wanted to use it, all you would have to do is ask.

Again, thank you all for your continued support, and I have already alerted the DA admins who handle this sort of thing to the situation, so bug him at your own risk. This is my disclaimer. .____.; I just wanted to let everyone know that I would really prefer to be credited by anyone who wants to use this drawing.

May I feature this in an art collage? With full credit of course. It's just a quick project for art class in highschool.

hi, i absolutely LOVE this fish of yours :D i was looking for pieces to inspire me for a piece i'm drawing for my mom, and i came across this. i used it as a reference for what my fish was going to look like. i hope that's okay :) it's definitely NOT the same drawing lol. it just looks similar. is that alright?

:iconkittahxd:
kittahxd Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011
:] It's perfectly fine. I'm glad that my little fishy could inspire you! :D

The theft thing was mostly aimed at a few people who had copied him exactly, right down to the bubbles and the colour choices. :[ So inspired-by drawings don't apply, and you're in the clear. :] I hope your mom likes it!

Absolutely lovely, I have a common veil tail myself, he's a perfect solid red. I would love to have something as beautiful as this peice to put on my body. But never without the artists permission.

Thank you very much for the compliment. :] I don't have a problem with people using it, I just hate it when people copy it directly and claim it as their own. And, of course, I prefer to be asked first. :]

Me too... I saw one of my photos used as a background on a deviants photomanipulation... I was majorly irked that they did not ask me, or credit me. I don't post much, or often, but it was quite annoying. I liked the waterspout betta as well, the idea of it is quite nifty. :)

However, in the future, you may want to ask before you use something that's not under the stock image category. :] A lot of people tend to get a little upset about it.
