Illustration Friday - "Shy"

I've been working with a lot of ink the last couple weeks and I thought today I'd play with some vectors just to switch it up a bit. This week's theme was "Shy" and started to think of characters and creatures who could be described as shy. I know old Nessy is being explained as just a swiming elephant, but I still like to believe in Santa so you'll just have to accept my delusions and enjoy my drawing.
