    Shark!!!!

    Started off wanting to paint the head of a great white shark, their profile is very tricky to get right other wise they look like they are smiling, composition is a bit flat so I tilted it and added the diver for some drama...

    It's a mixture of PS and Painter, Going to do some more shark diver stuff so I'll go for a better composition next time...

    Would love to know your thoughts...

    Cheers

    It's so vivid. Two words come to mind when I see it. Cold fear.
    An open mouth and an open mind go hand in hand. - me

    I can't think of any good critiques for this picture. You've pretty much got the look hammered down.

    Love the colors, used very effectively. The textures are also very nice. I might want to tweek the position of the leg a little, and some blood in the water would look fantastic.

    I have a great phobia for sharks, and i can barely watch this, which probebly in this case is a good thing, in some strange way i kinda love it.

    Duman cheers buddy, I think when I heighten the canvas I'll be able to sort out his legs... I did try one where his right leg was in it's mouth with a cloud of blood, but it was too much, I preferred the drama of a near miss or struggle, like the story isn't over yet... but I may have to satisfy some blood lust in another one.....

    I just thought that some really vibrant red could look really interesting in this piece. Anyway, kudos on a realistic looking shark.

    I'm impressed, it really has a cinematic feel to it! My only crit is not about the drawing itself: I don't know but if a shark just comes like this, wouldn't you scream regardless if you're underwater and thus relesease that thing you put in your mouth when you dive? I think it would add drama.
