Just finished! I could fiddle with the tail more but this seems to be the best I could manage. Fiddling just seemed to throw it off so this is how it is going to be. Besides, you can fiddle and fiddle and then wish you had just left it alone. I have learned (the hard way) to keep copies of the art I’m working on so I can go back to the version I had before.
I’ve been working on a shark for awhile. It was difficult to get the curves and straights to flow into each other and not having it look more like a dolphin than a shark. I like this as an end result. Perfect? No, but its pretty good. A tribute to our Canadian filmmaker, Rob Stewart.
Sharkwater Extinction – Rob Stewart
It started with a shamrock behind the crown but that was getting too messy looking and hard to see the image I wanted to make with so many things so close together. So, I took out the shamrock. I’ve wanted to make a claddagh for a long time. I have a few attempts in the past. This one turned out pretty good, I thought. Then, I realized it also looks like a bird wearing a crown. Now that I’ve seen that I can’t really see the claddagh any more. So, possibly another try for a claddagh… The hands were the hardest part. It’s the thumbs of the hands which look like the eyes of a bird (wearing a crown). So, it’s flexible.
