Nice job :D
But if I can comment a bit, I'd say the fish could use a slight curve around the midsection.
Another thing is that the waves could be mistaken for flames, was that on purpose?

Thank you! It's great to get some feedback. I agree with the curve. Next to other koi designs he looks a bit stiff. But I'm happy with the scales. As for the water, I sort of butchered the Japanese-style waves. With it's many faults I feel it's strengths make up for it. I learned some things drawing this, so the next time I'm commissioned for a tattoo design I'll do some things different.

I might add a little more curve in it. I worry how it might contrast on the arm. It might end up looking like a straight board but it's something you would have to see on the person. The detail is amazing. I especially like the fin under the water. The water also gives opportunity for some nice pattern.

Thanks so much for the feedback! I agree with your comments, but I was already along with the drawing before he asked for it as a tattoo design. I think it should be okay though.
