Betta Siamese Fighting Fish

I didn’t find more than one betta fish group in Canada when I was fixing up the category at Curlie. But, it inspired me to create a betta fish in ASCII art. We used to have them when I was a kid. They looked so sad (near death) in the pet stores. They didn’t live to an old age in our fish tank but at least they had more fish for company and they looked a lot healthier.

It started with a shamrock behind the crown but that was getting too messy looking and hard to see the image I wanted to make with so many things so close together. So, I took out the shamrock. I’ve wanted to make a claddagh for a long time. I have a few attempts in the past. This one turned out pretty good, I thought. Then, I realized it also looks like a bird wearing a crown. Now that I’ve seen that I can’t really see the claddagh any more. So, possibly another try for a claddagh… The hands were the hardest part. It’s the thumbs of the hands which look like the eyes of a bird (wearing a crown). So, it’s flexible.
