Really loving this piece, particularly how it actually has a very good meaning and stands for a very good cause. Shark fining is a very cruel thing to do and it really needs to stop. I was quite surprised and also really glad when it somehow managed to turn up on one of the official anti-shark fining Facebook page. Not only did it probably help bring awareness to that cause, but it also must have gotten you a fair bit of extra exposure on your art. Which is great, you really deserve that from all the work you put into your stuff.
This is a really good example of your ink skills. It's really really nice job, I was particularly impressed with the ink details within the sharks mouth. It would have taken me forever to do details like this in traditional art styles and it wouldn't be even nearly as good. It adds a very ruggid texture to the shark, which is realistic because they do have very rough skin and it also captures the sharks expression very well. It's hard to put a sad face on something like a shark, considering it's generally perceived as such a tough, merciless, cruel, killing machine. But you my friend, did it absolutely perfectly.
I also really like the watercolour, I just can't help but say that there is nothing more perfect for creating an underwater piece of art than that. It also works really really well, especially because you can capture the soft evermoving texture of the water and the blending of the blood with the water is really great. It captures the whole silky smooth liquid feel of this drawing.
Aw yeah, gained me a few extra likes and activity on my Facebook page. Also yes, I'm pretty pleased with how the watercolor turned out on this one. I used a different type of watercolor paper from my usual. Was pretty interesting.
Thanks again mayne!
You're such a good painter! I like how the watercolors look like the water in the ocean. I like how you protest against the inhumane.
Holy sh*t this is f***ing amazing
Love it. Beutiful lines and colours! And I like that you take a stand against shark finning. One of my teachers made me and my class really engaged about the subject.
