Swishy Character sketches

I probably posted this much earlier but I’ll repost it here. So here’s the original sketch work of Swishy, Amber’s faitful assistant in organizing her heists. For those who are not aware, Swishy is a Barrel Eyed fish, which was a type of fish that I myself was completely unaware of prior to writing Amber. In truth I wanted Swishy to be a unique type of fish, so I sought out to find the weirdest and most obscure type of fish I could find. In reality Barrel Eyed fish actually have a thin veil over their face which covers their eyes. However this kinda of design would have made facial expression of Swishy very limited, so I sought to give him eyes anyway, though I still wanted them to be a little weird. However many of the early designs came out looking… kinda creepy. Thus Swishy was given a more Disney like look and actually became a little more modeled after a Dolphin than a Barrel Eye. He still does have the glowing face which Barrel Eyes do posses and I also designed so his eyes close diagonally. So that’s a little fact on Swishy.
