A Shiver of Sharks

04 February, 2008

I've always wanted to illustrate sharks, so I did! This is the second piece of the animal group series. Suggestions are appreciated.

I like this a lot; However, at first glance it looked as if the sharks were beaching themselves. I think this is because 1)the color of the sky/background; and 2)some of the sharks are upside down and sideways which kind of makes them look like they're struggling; and 3)the shape of the water looks almost like and aerial view of the shore line. One solution I would suggest is to add some cute little clouds in the sky to match the style. Another would be to change colors (don't change colors, I like the muted palette.) I think the clouds would do the trick. But, of course, it's your call. GOOD PIECE REGARDLESS.

Thanks! That's really helpful advice. I'll experiment with the clouds a bit and see how that goes.

Nice piece, I totally agree with Brandon though. I couldnt put it in words so that is why I didn't leave a comment earlier. I agree the clouds might work
