Great White shark by Gough83 Great White shark by Gough83
This took me just over a week doing 2-3 hours a night. I drew the shark from a reference photo but made up the water effect at the top myself as well as adding a few small fish at the bottom to give the pic more life. I used Steadler 2B, HB, B, 2B, 4B and 0.5 B mechanical pencil on Daler Rowney A4 paper, blending stumps, cotton wool balls and kneadable eraser

Awesome shark drawing. I like the way you shade the water's light reflection on the beast's snout and back. Its beautiful.

depends on how you look at it. I was referred to as "the freak with the shark book" but I was pretty chill. Lovely piece btw, everyone I show it to doesn't believe it's drawn. (Must be a British thing)

Well i love sharks too, all animals actually so i'd say it was a good thing, especially as they have a bad reputation that isn't deserved. Thanks again :)

Great work here, it has so much depth! Love all the detail and how you made the tail blurry and the nose in focus. The reflections turned out great :)

Nicely-rendered shark, but the little fish were a mistake. They flatten it out really bad.
