An Accidental Trout: 'The Watermelon Whale'

This guy was to be "The Trout" that I agreed to make for a dear friend, but as you can plainly see he swam in a different direction and came out of the closet as a cute, but somewhat too big to be a trout, beluga whale. I named him the "Watermelon Whale" because his colors remind me of a cool sweet melon in the heat of summer.
I still have a little work to do before he is ready for his dive into the big ocean of fiber art. His water spout is just stuck in the blow hole for the photo. I plan to secure it and add embelishments. Also his lips and teeth are to be added, stuffing to be completed and a stand made.
