Adorable Anglerfish

Adorable Anglerfish - student project

I usually work in a much more realistic style but I wanted to play a little bit more to balance things out. I found a reference for a fox, I mainly liked how they're sitting with their front feet so prim.

I actually didn't do a more realistic reference sketch, just went straight to a more exaggerated one. It was hard to make the head that huge! I added a little more a smile too.

Kept the color fairly simple.

I happen to think that anglerfish are adorable just the way they are but I took a shot at it!

She absolutely needed a decorative bow to be fancy.

I did play around with different kind of eyes but I do find that I go back to the big watery eyes almost every time!

Thank you for the awesome class, this was so much fun! ;D
