Mer Clown Fish Female

This is my theoretical mate for marlin.I just recently dug her out of my computer files. As you may know, these fish are fish I actually have in a saltwater fish tank in my home.  At that time, (as I did not yet know about mated clownfish pairs)  I had Marlin, and a smaller clownfish Nemo.  That was when I made this picture.  When Nemo died when a fish "plague" swept the tank, I recieved a large clown to add to the tank. I found out that the larger of clown pairs are female.  And if two are the same size, they will literally duke it out, until one submits, and then the female will grow larger.  Anyway, at that point I did a loose sketch for another female clown, the real life mate for Marlin, named Coral (nemo lore).  I just went back and started working on that again.  Anyway  i told you Id be putting older things that I still liked up as well.  I think her form and shading were very good for that period of my artwork.  Most everything up here is 2007 or earlier, this is circa 2008.  I was 17 years old.  Not bad, I think.  As you can see this is the image that I did the human princess facial study for.  I think it really paid off to draw the head out in detail large first.  Let me know what you think.  I will probably go over this and smooth it out in photoshop, maybe add a background, soon.  We'll see.
