I want to add that I like your treatment of the gravel. You have a good visual sense.

What a great idea! The background texture plus the vibrant colors of the fish and gravel really puts this illustration over the top for me! Very cool. :)

Hahaha.. love that 'high-alerting' eyes of the fish. And beautiful color of the pebbles and water surrounding the fish.

Loved it in black and white, but its even neater in color. What an expression on that fish's face! Love the background pattern.

Heee hee, I can't blame the poor guy, with kitty on the prowl. Love the cute expression, the background texture and I realy like how you made the gravel on the bottom look wet in such a simple way. The whole thing is really cool! It even works in b&w. Nice.
