Encounter by Anoki-Doll Encounter by Anoki-Doll
Our Winner for January on Patreon! www.patreon.com/Anoki

In Siike culture, sharks are seen as heralds for the Shark God and Protector of the Oceans, Ka'sras. They are to be respected and one should keep a healthy dash of caution when running into them. Uri looks down in awe upon an absolutely massive shark while on a fishing trip.

Had an encounter with a Porbeagle shark once, I was in waist deep water with my friends swimming around in some deeper water off the beach. I see the fin in the water, shout to them, and they all rush out. I can't swim so I'd have to try and scramble out, possibly tripping and getting myself into trouble. So I stood still, and watched it.
The Porbeagle swims to where I am and slowly circled me, clearly looking to see what am I. I just keep calm (despite my brain trying to conjure up horrible images of being eaten and dragged away), and slowly turn my body from the waist up and my head, keeping an eye on the shark.
After a couple of minutes (it felt longer), it turns away and swims off. I watch it go, then head back onto the beach... where I had a little freak-out from the suppressed anxiety attack.
I knew if that shark wanted to hurt or kill me, it could have easily done it. In a way, I felt it knew I was trusting it, and that it could trust me.

Loving it,  I quite like how the water looks!! ~
I love how the boat looks as well, it looks cosy! ~ 


Also, fun facts about sharks!:

Did you know there's a type of shark called the "Basking Shark" eats plankton?
There's 440 shark species that are known! ~

And, did you know that one of the most common sharks is the "Spiny Dogfish shark"?
They're usually found in the North Atlantic oceans!
The Spiny Dogfish are quite small, and they're quite social... They live in schools.

(They're called "Dogfish" because they travel and hunt in packs) !

Lovely! 
I like the above perspective and how the composition of the shark and the figure forms a cross - two very different souls heading in different directions. 
The colours are very striking too, especially along with that water effect, :thumbsup:
