this is an illustration i literally just finished here at work. i'm taking a couple of minutes off just to upload it. this is the much more technical aspect of my job. straight up scientifically accurate illustration. bleh. this is not in any way fun, but it IS money, and since illustrators are basically prostitutes, we'll draw fish for hours if it involves money.
anyhoo, this is a Nassau Grouper, in spanish its called "Mero Cherna" and it was a late addition to a fish-book I'd been working on last year. at least its good to see that i've gotten better compared to the fished i was doing last year.
