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.
