I haven’t planned out just how many of these fish I am going to make, but this is number 9. Say hello to the carp.

Also new is the scale pattern. Affinity Designer is the program I am using. It allows you to fill an area with a repeating image. I made a small square of scales and saved them as a png. I spent a bit of time trying to find if there is a way to use a vector image for the pattern. No results.
