This started out as a watercolour and ink sketch. The illustration contains a nasty looking fish with a bit of an over-bite, a scared swimmer that is trying to make a break for freedom, and the somewhat scary-looking under-water plant life.
The image parts and pieces were then digitally separated into individual components in order to reposition them within the composition.
Digital photography was used for the water and the fishing rod. The final illustration consists of seven layers that make up the final composition. This was submitted to Illustration Friday for the theme of Revenge.
