Diggin' these nature sketches and how rough and free you're being with them. In this case you've captured the movement of the shark very well. Keep up the great work!

I have to agree with the comment above, the smaller fishes are sort of simplistic, the rest is awesome though:)

The fish are meant to be simplistic. The focus is on the shark and the water. Perhaps they were more of an afterthought on my part.

That's a cool looking Shark, a great white by the looks of it, very imposing and fierce looking. I really like how it turned out, and I really like how the distortion of the water at the surface turned out, it's very impressive how you copied it in black and white. The other fish looks ind of simplistic however.

Yes, that's fair, I figured they were just there so the rest of the ocean wasn't so vacant, all you needed was to show that something was there.

I really like it. I think that you captured the head perfectly, it's so easy to mess up a great white and you nailed it!

Omg this is so epic I had to come on and comment on it. The shark detail is amazing. Looking at the shark it's like it knows what's waiting above, prey wise. Also I like the little fish next to it just minding their own business, glad by the thought they're not gonna be eaten up. Well done fab work.

Thank you. Sometimes less is more, and subtlety creates what the eye sees. When you limit the color and technique...you can produce some amazing results.

It definitely worked. I never really thought about that. Quite interesting I must say.
