Looks like the red betta fish has the faster moves!

I’ve always wanted to do another fishbowl design . . .

You may catch some flak for using a Hadoken, but hey, I still think it's a cool design.

The white fish should have studied the Ken Masters flow chart.

I feel like the white beta's fins should be flying forward more, like it's front fin, because he was pushed out of the bowl. His fins shouldn't look like the other beta's fins. Nice idea, however.

Aww I like this one. My betta fish would be proud to see me wearing it. Though I think it's going to eventually be a double KO unless the red betta can survive without water.

My favorite design so far easily. The design, especially the water splash in the bowl, reminding me a lot of illustrations in Seuss books.

Isn't it a double KO? I don't know if there's gonna be enough water left in the bowl for the red betta to survive.

Betta can breathe oxygen straight from the air, so as long as someone finds them in time to rehydrate (usually a few hours, stronger fish can go a day or two depending on the surrounding humidity), they should be hunky-dory!

Aww thanks!

And thank you to everyone for the comments. And Xazzy . . .I never knew the true awesomeness of Bettas until now. I'll never get one though. I'll have nightmares of it crawling out of the bowl and staring at me as I sleep.

Haha! Well, a well-kept betta should have a secure lid anyway, since they have a tendency to jump out of the water. they're kind of suicidal little jerks.

i like this, but i wish the fireball was more visible, and more fiery. i know it's white because it has the heat of 1,000 suns, but it kind of looks like a snowball.

Clever idea. The best shirt in the fog, in my humble estimation.

Re: K.O.


This is excellent, and I would buy it as is, but is there a reason that you decided not to go with the traditional blue beta fish? Was it for the Ken/Ryu comparison?

Indeed.

So many beautiful colors out there, but I felt I needed to use the white and red to sell the idea . Maybe I'll try a more traditional Betta drawing some other time.

Awesome shirt. I really hope it makes it through.
That said, DBZ? *Avatar*? Really? I can only hope that is some peoples' idea of a bad joke.

Aw, sorry you feel that way. This took a long time to draw (referencing Bettas and the fireball) and I went through no less than three shading styles before picking this one. In addition, trying to figure out how to draw the water without slapping a ton of ink on the shirt wasn't easy. There's also a known fact that two male bettas will usually fight to the death if in the same bowl so there's a reason these two are fighting (so it's not like I just picked two random critters to fight it out, I agree that that would have far less meaning). It's not just slapped together fwiw. If you feel that way I can't stop you (I sometimes have the same feeling about other people's designs). I just figure I'll fill in some of the behind-the-scenes stuff

Plus we have a SF 2 cabinet at work and I spend too much time on it. So it was a personal design for myself as well as a public one for woot .

~Cheers
