Brochoadmones milesi
Early Devonian
colored pencil on heavy-toothed paper

This one looks so much like a knife fish  :)

You caught me! The coloration was partially influenced by a reticulated knifefish, although I brightened it up a lot.

By the way Halichoeres What drawing techniques do you use? For example oil on canvas, digital illustration, etching in your paintings. This Devonian fish with its colors has left me surprised by its beauty.

Thank you, very kind. It depends. I do everything in pencil first, usually a 2H technical pencil, though sometimes I use a 3H if I know that the end result is going to be light colored, or an HB if I know it's going to be really dark. I use archival pens for black-and-white work, usually Pigma pens with several tip sizes. I use Derwent watercolor pencils for most color work, though I sometimes supplement with marker if I want large expanses of very saturated color. The Brochoadmones is entirely watercolor pencil. The Tethymyxine was mostly pencil but involved some gray and pink marker.
