If anyone’s wondering how this little fishie is still alive, by which I mean no one’s wondering that, keep in mind that Paintshop Week is mostly non-canon. Some of you may remember that Sherman’s already showed up before, unfortunately he doesn’t like being called Shelly, at least not most of the time.
Drawing this also made me realize how difficult it is to show a scene underwater. There’s hardly any background you can do without color or making things too distracting and time consuming. It sure makes me appreciate the animators of Spongebob a little more.
