Ta-da! I'm back.
I've spent a few weeks on this one. Up close it's a big ol' mess, but the zoomed out, squished down version looks pretty neat! What I'm saying is that it's not in any way polished, but I'm pretty happy with it and ready to move on.
I caught the IFX weekly topic a while ago but didn't enter, but the title "Weird Pet" kind of stuck in my head. So...fish-dog was born! Oh boy, are there some ugly fish in this world. Seriously, google "ugly fish" sometime. I've never been so entertained looking up references. XD
Did you ever read the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark? The one with the kid who takes a pet dog home from Mexico, and it gets sick so they take it to the vet who's like "Um, that's a Mexican sewer rat and it's got Rabies..."
Yeah. Something like that.
