Thanks! My concept is simple, its going to be a worm wearing a cowboy hat riding a trout or fish of some kind. Done in 2d with a cartoony style. I am hoping to post progress soon!

This is the fish design of my illustration.

Yo Don, the fish looks cool man. Do you think you will make the sea BG, sort of western-esque? This could be too corny, maybe the worm could have a star fish badge or something. Anyways Ill keep watching...

I think he needs some "hands" (I don't know the appropiate word in english)... other than that, lovely design, I like a lot his face... also, when I saw the thumbnail I thought it was 3D, great shading!
about the composition, I like the sketch at the top-right...
good luck with it!

Thanks for the comments!! The Fish is actually 3d and I am bringing it into photoshop and painting over it, just using 3d to help with light sourcing.

I changed the sign a bit to make it stand out some more, still not sure how I want to make the composition stronger, hopefully something will spark in my head.

Hey Don, I like the addition of the sign... somehow it makes mw feel like I want to see the ground too. Just an idea.. Cool work tho!

Looking good.......maybe add an environment. Imagine a fence made from "coral"....they could be jumping over it. You could use an old "anchor" or even a "bike wheel" that's been dumped into the water.

Keep going.

The worm's facial expression is hilarious. I think it would be nice if you could make the fish's face more excited like a rodeo bull. At the moment, he looks rather sedated compare to the worm. Nice concept. Good luck.
