This painting is playing on the word 'coy'... and of course the koi fish also adds to the Asian feel. =)

I came across this brilliance due to the "Free Print w/ Purchase of 2" ad on the side. Thankfully, it included your s/n & deviation title. Your work on the colorful fish is intetestingly detailed. As is your work on the beautiful and lightly tattooed female in the work. Imprssed grandly is what I honestly am. Luckily, they did post your s/n on there. Now, you have a new additional fan of your work. Congratulations.

Added this to my fav's.

I stared at this pic for a good five minutes, trying to figure out if she was in the water or if it was even water or if the koi were tattoos, and then I realized why her hair was the only thing not bluish, and that she wasn't really in water at all.... XD
At least, I think that's what's going on.
Anyways, what I'm saying is that any picture that can keep me staring that long is damn good. <3
