Sad, Sad Song

Sad, Sad Song

"And so I went to a whale, I said, 'Killer Whale, please,
What do you do when you true love leaves?'
He said, 'I only have but one trick up my sleeve,
I sing it over and over 'till she comes back to me.'

I make a sad, sing a sad, make a sad sad song..."

I'll go ahead and critique it here. I feel that it is a great piece, using the values and colors at hand--however; some of your drawing gets lost because of your value choice in the whale. It is ever so close to the black value in his linework. I wonder if using a lighter blue, Disney Pocahontas hair would help the linework around certain areas of the whale? And I also worry about printing this piece as well! Since you've had so many issues with near blacks just going all black. Other than that, it really is prime.
