Repeat these same steps you used to make the 'Back fin' onto all the other fins.
Step 41 Scales
Now we will create the scales for the body of the fish. Make a new layer and fill it with any color then add this pattern overlay. Once you have applied this pattern overlay 'convert it to s smart object' then rasterize.
In this step we will change around the colors. First color is #cd200a, #ffd03f, #FFFFFF
Warp this scale layer to one side of the fish. Erase any parts that go outside of the body.
On the second scale layer do this exact same thing for the other side. Erase any parts that go outside of the body.
Merge both of the scale layers.
Add shadow to the body by grabbing a soft round brush #a16e28 and paint along the body
Change this layer to Multiply
Create a New layer and with a soft brush #734e18 paint along the bottom of the fin like the image below.
Change this layer to Color Burn with an Opacity of 73%
Create a New Layer and grab your soft round paint brush #edc480 again and paint along the back of the fish
Change this layer to Color Dodge with an Opacity of 69%
Create a New layer and place dots onto the red scales by using a soft round brush (14px #734e18)
Change this layer to Color Burn then Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur
Do this same thing for the yellow scales(7px soft round brush #edc480)
Change this layer to Soft Light
This is how it should look so far.
Change the color of the Head to the settings below then convert it to a smart object then rasterize it.
Next use a variety of brush sizes to achieve this effect for the head of the fish. Note: You may have to use multiple layers with different Opacity Levels
Step 59 Eye
Now we will make the eye. Create a New Layer and grab your Elliptical tool and make a oval like the one in the image below, fill it with any color.
Step 60 Layer Settings
Add these setting to your outer eye
Create a New Layer and make another shape like the one below and fill it with #950903
Add this layer style to that layer
Grab a soft brush and paint along the top of the eye(#b81512) on a new layer
Change this layer to an Opacity of 65%
