Very cute illustrations! I think you need to switch your colors up. The seal doesn't stand out with the red background, maybe make it another blue? I also think the fishes could be a lighter blue and the seal/outline of the seal should be darker. Have fun!

I agree about the colors. The illustrations are super cute. I would make the background a different blue as well.

Love this - I agree about the colors. maybe make the seals the dark blue (that the wee fish are in now) and the wee fish in the red and the sea, the light blue? The color tones are perfection, just needs the seals to come to the foreground and less of the red, I think. Super charming style. I could totally see the pattern on pillows selling in a high end shop on the Cape or something. My two cents : )

I think this is a great first submission! I agree about the background color though... a nice dark blue would look nice and the seals would stand out be more of the focus.
