My piece Something Fishy is one of my most popular pieces ever. Nonetheless, I keep looking at it and feeling increasingly unhappy with the technical side of it; I see flaws in it every time I look, and often wished I’d been more skilled at Photoshop when I did it. I’ve always wanted the eye to be more “watery” and the fish to look more like it was actually in the eye, not just stuck on top of it. I also felt the original fish was a tad angular as a result of my lacking blending skills at the time.
So I decided that I’d do it again, because I really like the concept, now that I am a more capable PSP user.
One hitch in doing it again is that I seem to have lost the original file, as well as the original fish image I used, so I had to start again, and use a different fish.

Of course now this is done my husband insists he likes the original better, but I prefer this one, so I’d love feedback as to which you like better if you’re willing to give it!!

Thanks to Obsidiandawn for the bubble brush.
