I am currently working on creating an illustration of a hagfish and its heart as part of one of my independent study projects. I really wanted to showcase the mouth of the hagfish since it is both very creepy and cool. The hagfish is drawn in forced perspective so the front of its body is larger than the back of its body. I have finalized my sketch, but I am still working on painting the hagfish. Below is both my final sketch of my hagfish and the color illustration after working on it for the past two days. The color illustration is not finished yet, and still requires a good amount of work to be completed.
