Here I was trying a new technique of drawing with tiny bubbles or circles. It was not promising at first, but then little by little a fish started to emerge. The beauty of this method is that you can gradually build up value to where you want it. Of course, if helped with the fish surface being scaly, but I think it would work with any type of surface if used correctly. Just remember to keep your pencils sharp!
