Looks great! I imagine the clam opens up and has a bomb inside where a pearl would be?
I like the starfish but I could see some people thinking it's a pot leaf... Some starfish have more thickness in the middle which would make the legs look less leaflike... Would put some meat on her too.
I love the progress updates on this!
It would be cool if the bombs were white exploding pearls, I wasn't even thinking that when I drew it.
For some reason I tend to get hung up on details like, "If she pulls them out of her shell, does that mean she has powers? Do the characters have powers?" but then I remember that those details don't really need to be explained when your characters are all talking fish.
Yeah the starfish does look kinda like a pot leaf, my roommate said the same thing. I tried her in different colors, yellow, pink, blue... but green just seemed to sit the best next to the other characters. Maybe I'll push the green more into the yellow/lime side and try thickening her up like you said. Good feedback, thanks man.
Interesting new characters here, and the notion of adding zombie fish skeletons there intrigues me. By the way, what happened to the boxing orca and great white shark you had a while back? Will they appear as additional party members later on?
