Illustration assignment, "relationship with nature". Had to be a 4x16" vertical picture. Decided to dedicate it to my recently passed betta fish, Iris.
Iris, Iris, Iris, fishy in the sea
She's a little fish, cute as can be
Iris, Iris, Iris, I can set you free,
She's a little fish with a red belly~
The scratchboard is something new...and ungh. It's also supposed to be, well, clean, but there's something about the dinginess of it that I loved after scanning it in.
