Not my best, I know, but this picture amuses me. I like it's expression. 'Tis some sea creature with a long neck and a hammer head. Pretend the shading is better.

Whoa, trippy. I can see why this might amuse you, it's just great. The tail is amazing.. and its.. er.. "expression" is strangely peculiar as well.. if you can call eyes expression? You know what I mean. Lol, it's possibly one of the coolest things I've ever seen. It's great, and highly creative. Do they sell them at petshops?

1 Em Beslar replies: "Why, thank you for the comment! So lovely. I like it's expression, too! I had a bit of struggle with that, because the pencil kept smudging over the eyeball or the line would be too thick, and either one of those makes it look unfocused and calmer. I wanted the eyeball to be the focus, I guess, and kind of stare at the viewer. So, thanks! Sure, they sell them at petshops. You just have to find the right one!"
