Drawing in Stages... Ralph's Clown Trigger Fish, "Spot"

Here's a drawing in stages that I did for a friend. It started as a sketch in my journal in colored pencils.
I took the image and scanned it into the computer.
 I wanted the background to be a bit more like water and lights in a tank, so I went to work on the background. I made it a solid color. I chose blue for the obvious water reference.
 Then I added some texture and some squiggles, some green reminiscent of algae and sea plants.
 I added some bent light rays, using the lighter blue and some green. I liked the contrast with the colors of the fish.
Then, I added a simple greeting and sent it off to our friend.
