Storm Bringer by SteelJaw Storm Bringer by SteelJaw
I'm so sick of this piece it hurts. I've been working on it for what feels like forever. Months now. Just got it done. Just like Torpedo ( [link] ) it had a decidely 'rushed' feeling to the background. Not to mention I still cannot get rid of the damned pencil stroke-lines. Granted, the diagnol ones under the storm are intentional, they're suposed to be rain. :P I started to disable the critiques on the piece, since I already know the problems with it and I really don't want to cut it up further, but I can't grow as an artist that way. So cut at will. My technique is faltering big time due to lack of practice.

Anyway, this is Dylan Fulton, a wereshark of the Isurus oxyrinchus variety. That's Shortfin Mako, for those who need the vernacular name. ;>

Colored pencil on bristol with touches of Micron and white acrylic, 9x12".

** EDIT ** This piece took 1st Place in the Fantasy Catagory at the 2005 Star Fest Art Show in Denver.

Thought it was a mako with the color and the hight in his jump. You should do a Great White anthro leaping. A Great White jump is a scary/beautiful thing to see.

Many thanks! I've pondered doing a leaping Great White, and I most likely will at some point. Their jumps are so much different than makos. :>

Do it! Do it!

Makos are more acrobatic and lighter in thier jumps, Whites are heavy and have compleat power.
