I recently had a chance to go to a friend's house for dinner on the day he received this Arctic Char from the Coppermine River. I went over with a bottle of white wine, photographed the fish, ate it and then drew it. The drawing part took days.....
Seen as is on Flickr, a ton of detail is not visible compared to original which is around 20 inches long.
My char was done on Crescent Cold Press Illustration Board 100% Rag Acide-Free Medium Textured Surface. I used a combination of Faber-Castell Polychromos and Derwent color pencils. This illustration took over 50 hours. Thanks to Joe Evyagotailak for providing specimen.
