E is for Eel by AudreyBenjaminsen E is for Eel by AudreyBenjaminsen
E is for Eel... an extremely irritating and time consuming one at that! XD Well this drawing was for an assignment that had to include a sea creature and the letter that it starts with. It's done in india ink with one of those nib pens :)

My word, that thing has a terrifying face; it's great! The composition and dynamism are fanatastic and the whole thing is amazingly realised.

I was looking through my old favorites and saw this and I realized that I've never even noticed the "E" in the image before lol. This really is a fantastic piece.

And a very evil-looking eel, too, but kind of cute- perhaps I should adopt him as a pet? :) Are you in an art school?

Why did I immediately think of Graeme Base's work when I saw this? I'm really not sure but trust me he is an awesome illustrator, as well as this drawing is too. I love how you broke the frame with this and incorporated the E into the design.

Nice pen work! I like how the eel is popping out of the frame. I think it helps in bringing the focus of the picture to the head. :+fav:

This is amazing. I want a children's book made entirely of realistic pictures like this instead of little cartoon characters. Then I shall show my children the horrors of the world and laugh at their fear... now if only I had children...
