Big Fish In a Small Pool by psychohazard Big Fish In a Small Pool by psychohazard
I can see the sky but I do not have the means to reach it. My hands are limp and the walls are high. But I don't fit here.

I... feel very bad for the poor fish who is too large for his cave. :( I wonder how long he's been sitting there?

I guess that means your illustration was very effective in creating a little world, since it's got me thinking more about the scene. :)

There's different ways to think about it. They'd could easily be stuck in a strange place. But if they're physically adapted to survive in that environment- shallow water and whatever other restrictions there are, hinted at by the lungfish like lobed fins - they should be happy in being in their natural habitat, and yearning to be something their not is an even more tragic scene. Or maybe that's just me BSing :B

Haha, good points. :) It still feels a little sad, though.

Bearded Jedi should drop in right about...now

The golden light is so beautiful. It feels like the summer in these parts, but colder.

This is what happens when you flush a fish down a toilet when its still alive.

This is what happens when you dump your tropical fish into the creek.
