Illustration Friday: Reflection

Okay, this was long overdue. Illustration Friday would not be proud of me for posting my illustration this late. But what the heck!

The topic was 'reflection' so mirror was the first thing that came to my mind. But clich├ęd, yes? So, the next best thing was water. But instead of the idea of looking at your own reflection in the water, I thought of sketching something not so literal. Hence, fish. And let's be honest here. Koi fish are some of the most elegant and legendary fishes out there. And if that's not enough, the song Rather Be by Clean Bandit was playing in loop at the time.
