Bramble Shark (Day 2's Shark!)

Pretty late, but here are my drawings of day 2's shark (the Bramble Shark)
Decided to do a marker/color pencil sketch. Still don't like how the colors are scanning:

And a bonus drawing of a Sperm Whale caught in a bramble patch:

Tiger sharks are coming soon...

Shark Week 2012, Day 1: Oceanic Whitetip Shark

I've meant to dust the cobwebs from this old blog for months. What better time to resume posting than the most wonderful week of the year? I am, of course, referring to Shark Week. And this year, as in years before, the talented Kristen Campbell is heading up the Shark Week Sketch Jam! For those of you who want to play along, each day we will be drawing (or painting, sculpting, sewing, etc.) a specific shark species. Take a look at the sketch jam blog and deviantart pages to see what everyone else is coming up with, and feel free to join in on the fun!

Sunday's shark of the day was the Oceanic Whitetip. I sat down with some scrap paper, my Pentel Pocketbrush, and some markers and, in spite of how rusty I felt, did a few sketches of the whitetips (and their pilot fish companions):

This page was fun to draw. Added the color here digitally:

I don't think the colors scanned very nicely, but ah well...here are a couple I colored with markers:

So it begins. Happy Shark Week, everybody!

Edit: Day 2 is the Bramble Shark :)
