Nice drawing! What type of plant are you planning to use for the scape?

thx jeff-- if it were bigger you'd see HC, bacopa australis, and some grassy plant.

it would be even cooler if it was for real...

Do you own a real fish tank, or do you just draw pictures of them?

I make them too-- check my sig. There's also lots of random threads by me in this forum. In any case, these sketches are a result of my lack of satisfaction both in photography (no camera, so having have people with no aquascaping background do the photography for me) and not having desired equipment.

This picture's dimensions/feeling is based off of the ADA 60cm tank, and I'm hoping to try one next year. This summer I'll be studying in Japan so hopefully that'll help towards that project. This drawing is hopefully a "first draft."

the drawing looks good, but its WAY easer said than done. Making a real tank that looks that good is a whole nother story.

What's your point? Why would it be easy?

It's not so easy to make this drawing either. Even among those at the top of the Aquascaping world, being able to do this type of work is rare. Amano Takashi says he has no talent for drawing and painting at all. You're not about to assert that aquascaping is a more difficult and legit art than painting? I'd certainly call them even.

there is a big diffrence betweyne painting, and using a software program to creat and edit imiges. I wouldnt call that art. And for the record, I think painting and drawing takes way more skill than aquascaping.

If you painted that picture with real paint and a real paint brush, then hands down you are a truly gifted artist. If you put it together on your computer (wich I think is the case) I would not call it art. It's more like cutting and pasting; like we all did in grade 2.

Some of it is clearly painted, but other parts look to me like they have been cut and pasted on. If I am wrong I appoligise. Either way, it is a nice picture.

Ok, the fish for these things are drawn separately and then pasted on multiple times for the sake of ease and to let me play with fish selection. Ultimately though, they're still hand drawn. Aside from that . . .

Sorry shuks: You're wrong. My signature in the bottom right corner? Done using a wacom tablet, just like the rest of the thing. And if you don't know what a tablet is, than I'd guess you don't know enough about digital art to even judge.

BTW-- even if it were photomanipulation, that is also considered an art these days. What do you think a collage is?

anyway, I set up an account for myself at deviantart.com; those of you want to see more of my work you can look at the link in my sig.

so, your telling me that you painted the ripples in the surface of the water? You also painted all the plants in there? I'm willing to bet thoes plants were cut and pasted. The only thing that is clearly painted is the gravel, the rocks, and the wood. I'm dont think the rest is, but I could be wrong.

I strongly dissagree. Maybe if I were in grade 2, I would consider cuting and pasting an "art", but not anymore.

I dont really see what collage has to do with it. Your saying that everyone who goes to collage is an artist? I dont get it?

So, if you go to collage for a dental assistans degree, you are suddenly an artist? please explain...
