The Goldfish Are Restless by ursulav The Goldfish Are Restless by ursulav
Elwood was pretty sure that the goldfish had just come to beg for crumbs, but something about their blank little eyes and gaping mouths was really starting to creep him out.

Err, yeah. I wanted to paint a turtle, just to start working out the turtle design in the Pink Lizard/Dodofish style. This is probably not the final stop of the turtle design, since it's obviously a quickie, and it kinda got away from me--I had intended the little goldfish just to be like pigeons, waiting innocently for a handout, but they wound up just a trifle more sinister than I'd planned, (the size made it tough to get detail into 'em) and it's kinda starting to look as if Elwood should avoid putting his feet in the water. When I visualize the next stage of the story, I get a half-eaten cookie forlornly on the rock, and rings of agitated water. (Alas, poor Elwood...) So yeah, kinda got away from me there...might have to revisit it some time, and work large enough to get some detail on the goldfish that I couldn't get at this size.

Anyway, original is for sale, prints available! Visit [link] or drop me a note!

This is 100% what would happen if my boyfriend put his 1.5 inch long turtle in my goldfish tank. :)  That turtle is terrified of everything.  Including some fish. :XD:

Hahaha. They remind me of this video I saw of this giant koi pond in Coppenhaggen, Denmark. It was of a large pavilion where visitors could feed the fish. Only you didn't see the koi after people threw food in. All you saw was "OMNOMNOMNOM".

Those goldfish are just too, too cute! I know I've commented on this before, but every time I see it I just think how cute they are. :D
