This one is an exploratory version of a monster for my thesis: a smoking, hooker-esque fish. It’s based off a real animal, the red-lipped batfish (which does not, to my knowledge, actually smoke).
I think the smoke’s going to have to go way slower, maybe need to inbetween all the frames here.
Here are some of the sketches I made of the smoke from blown-out matches. It is really neat to observe wispy smoke up close – I’m not a fan of incense but I probably should pick some up for further studies.
