Claybord Band Art

Here's a 5x7 claybord piece I recently drew for my friends in the Dallas indie band Sealion.  

Recently I've been really focused on developing a more controlled use of line, especially when it comes to hatched shading.  The nice thing about the claybords is that I can use parallel lines to suggest value, but cut back across them perpendicularly with my scraper tool, giving it a nice faded dotted-line effect.  Best example being the sea lion's fin where it goes from white to gray.  Some areas work better than others, but looking back on it I'm especially happy with the fish/seaweed/bubbles area.  If you click to enlarge it you can see the details a bit more clearly.
