Not gonna lie, this salmon is one of the best things I’ve ever drawn, and the scan, of course, isn’t quite picking up all the detail. I actually drew this comic a few months ago, but ironically enough I just spent the past two days getting to watch wild chum salmon spawning in a stream not too far from where I live. it was really cool getting to see the bright red splashes of color along their sides, and watching the female dig redds for their eggs in the gravel.

Species portrayed: chum (dog, keta) salmon (Onchorhynchus keta)
