    Thank you. The first one is the most recent, and the gem scales took forever to draw and color.

    Update!!

    Warning, dying fishies!






    I call this one "Midnight Snack"
    [​IMG]
    And all this time, you thought it was raccoons.:biggrin:

    This features a Norkabrass vampire in his true form. Vampires take the form of a mortal during the day, and by night, they look like this.

    Here is a design for my first pond, which I plan on building this summer. If you have questions just ask.
    [​IMG]

    Also, this is to scale. one square is one square inch. If I did my math right, the pond should be a little under 3,000 gallons.(2,842.4 gallons to be exact :) )

    Do you have dreams about your pond that keep you awake at night? All kidding aside, great art work.

    I think I've seen that one guy with the fish in his mouth near my pond before............................, well, maybe not.

    Happy ponding,

    Rich :)

    Thanks. No I don't have nightmares about my pond, because I don't have a pond :3

    I heard that vampires have been raiding ponds in the Washington area, so watch out!!

    You know,.....I think you're right. Right now, the only preditor I need to keep an eye out for is herons. Last summer I witnessed one circling the area on several occassions.

    Keep up the art work.

    Happy ponding,

    Rich :)

    It is actually a bright fluesent orange with piercing red eyes... I changed the bio on the gem koi, they are now a rare form of golem. I plan on writing a story about them.

    Muwahahaha :devil: Here I am making a four year old thread relevant again.

    I drew this on my computer today. Just a simply sloppy minimalistic drawing. Enjoy:LOL:
