This is fantastic, love the sheen and the eyes. Spot on!
Thanks so much Magnus!!
Great fish - Betta Splendes. It seems real, but bigger than the real fish. Gold
Yah, it is bigger, yes. And it is indeed Betta Splendens. I would say it is about 2:1, which makes a real fun paintjob. And thanks a lot Eric! I used to be an aquarium nerd, with fresh and marine tanks, and this sparked that old interest. Might just get a betta tank now :)
Very original and extremely well done. great idea. Gold!!
Thanks so much :) Although I take zero creative for the amazing idea. I am just the hired goon :)

Thank you! It is actually in total only painted using Abteilung primary/secondary set sold
Through AK. And black and white of course. So most is pure blue and pure red.
Beautiful work. I love the saturation
Thanks Jaime! Happy to hear :) and yes I tried to push saturarion to the max.
I looked twice, your work is just amazing. You have set the lights and shadows so convincingly that the colors get such a fantastic luminosity that I have never seen before. I am impressed.
Keep it up!!!
Thank you so much. This study of the fish and how its surface reacts to light was really interesting. It was one of those projects where I think prior to starting that it is simple only to dig deeper and see the complexities.
That’s is just stunningly beautiful mate
Thanks Tim :)
Amazing work Jakob ❤️
Thanks mate. And ditto ;)
Great painting and great miniature :) I can’t praise enough both you and Robot Rocket for doing such a great job with this release. Idea for the sculpt is really simple but it’s beauty works wonders and your painting skills brings this fish to life. Props for chosing very beautiful color scheme, I love it!
Thanks Natalia. Big fan of your work! I passed on your comment to Peder and Matty from RRM. Best wishes
