IF Seed

When I was little my sister used to tell me that if I ate a watermelon seed I would grow a watermelon vine in my stomach. She was so mean, lol. Anyway here is my illustration for Illustration Friday Topic, Seed. This time around I did colored pencil on black paper. I just got a new cintiq so I will be practicing on it in the coming weeks. :)
