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!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Best Freinds

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.
