Riding on Charlie

Charlie is nowhere near as huge and heavy and Ed, being a koi fish. But, riding him is an experience like no other! This (soon-to-be) bright and colorful koi fish has no problem swimming in any lake, even if they’re near nuclear power plants!

On a side note, when I sketch out my drawings, I often use harder pencils like 2H. This way, I don’t smudge the paper as much while I’m drawing.

Part 1 – Dragon Fish

Did you know that koi fish can sell for >$1 million in Japan? It’s not surprising. These are easily the most beautiful members of the carp family. Going by what I’ve read about ancient Japanese folklore, koi fish could transform into dragons, as evidenced by the “whiskers” on their faces.

Plus, they remind me of the beloved pet goldfish that I had in Kindergarten! Whether they’re sharks or koi, I’m a sucker for fish. Simply amazing creatures that come in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes, almost like underwater birds. A fish’s intelligence and cognition are very impressive, too.
