The Pike by MinnaSundberg The Pike by MinnaSundberg
A slightly modified illustration of the scene on page 126 where Ville encounters this happy little fish-fellow...who is about three times as big as in the comic. Yikes, I guess I went a bit overboard here. o_o
It's been a few months since I drew this (which was around the same time I drew the corresponding comic page) so I have grown to hate a lot of stuff in this piece. Like that water! Seriously, why did I draw it like that? Oh, I know why I did that: I wanted it to look similar to the way I drew it in the comic, but I did not take into consideration that without the organic feel of traditional ink lines it just looks like I can't draw underwater scenes to save my life. Bleh! But at least the Pike looks menacing enough, points for that. : B

Ville is an unhappy little seal-doggy right now, yes he is.

Haha, satuin näkemään tämän kuvan ennen sarjissivua missä kala tulee ja se tuntui sitten niin kovin pieneltä, vaikka sanoitkin että tämä on isompi. xD Oisin varmaan paskonu housuuni jos oliskin ollut tämä siinä, hahah. :heart:

As I have said before; love the comic, but this is also one of my favorite forms for Ville, the poor pup. :D

To me the water looks almost like a rainstorm on a mountain top. The Pike then would be some kind of statue or fossil... I'm very inspired right now - thanks :)

I really love how you captured the usual vicious sneer associated with pike and barracuda. Makes it a more threatening and imposing creature. The first time I looked at it, it gave me the willies. Great job.

It actually looks like the water is being stirred up by the pike, adding to the overall feeling of danger and rushing (and poor Ville wanting to flee). Anyhow, I like the look of it and the menacing pike (does it have a name?).
Also, I've been very much enjoying the comic lately. <3

When I was on a rafting trip in Montana, USA, and was told that there was a toothy fish called a 'pike' that liked to live in the water around there, this is exactly how I imagined it! :D

I do not know why but it feels like a homage almost to the scene in Disney's sword in the stone where Wart is slowly being stalked by the pike. Might be coloration, might be that the bigger fish looks like a pike. As for your water not looking right, it reads as "wind" more of. Water does not show motion underneath its surface, so the lines come across as not fitting. Just my thoughts. Otherwise love the textures and perspective. Keep it up.

Ville is such a good dog. I love him in the last pages. He's so expressive and so is he in this picture. I love the menacing fish. I can't wait for the rest of the comic. : D

Maybe you did the water like that for a strong current? Nevertheless, ville is a cutie and this piece is still amazing to me.
