Shark Tutorial

Post by KaraMundy on Fri Jan 06, 2012 3:01 pm

I get asked for sharks a lot. People love how fierce my sharks are. Makes little ones feel big and pre-teens feel cool. Just thought I'd share. My line work is a little off due to being lazy, hahaha.



Photobucket

You can also also jazz this up for WOW factor. Just add more shadows, highlights, "under belly" and a gum line. Example:

I like that, I love how 3D it looks!

I have a really quick cute shark I do from Lisa Joy Young, but it doesn't look as 3D as this!

That's great. I think I'm going to "snag" it from you & see if I can tweek it. I do my shark off the mouth & usually use a splitcake.
