I have spent several years studying rockfish in grad school and am still very fond of them. Shocked

This is mostly split stitch using 6 strands of cotton floss on a stretched canvas.

I sketched a picture in pencil on the canvas and then stitched over it.

Its in a 6" hoop.

I ran out of orange floss at the very end of the tail fin, which I will fix as soon as I get the opportunity to go to the store ....
Comments and criticism welcome Smiley

Is that supposed to be a S. altivelis or something else?

Regardless of Sp., you've done a wonderful job! It looks very tedious.

Its not intended to be a scientific drawing, its more a generic rockfish (shape, spines and color).  It was inspired by the magnificent Sebastes alutus (Pacific Ocean Perch), not S altivelis.

It wasn't tedious at all, I find stitching is very relaxing....

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
