Lunch Sketch 09 – Sand Eel

Sketchbook_00017

Sand eel chasing down prey.  When I was walking in Garden of the Gods, there was a rock formation that could either be interpreted as a penis or an eel head.  Rather than allowing my brain to slip and slid it’s way down into the gutter more than necessary, I decided to go the eel route.  Since the park location is rather arid in climate, I decided to go ahead and do the creature in a similar environment.  Doesn’t quite communicate what I was going at, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out how’d that giant beast would be floating.  Perhaps those things it eats gives it colossal gas to the point that it floats. 😛

I really should find a sketchbook that has a midtone already established.  Would take less time doing these build ups and perhaps I could finish a piece while on my lunch hour.
