Carcharodon carcharias by Art-by-Jilani Carcharodon carcharias by Art-by-Jilani
The great white shark, Carcharodon carcharias.

Tools used on 8X10 vellum paper:
Mechanical pencil, kneaded eraser, toilet paper and cutips to blend.

"And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces."

-Sam Quint (Jaws)

Really nice! Sharks are such misunderstood creatures...Like other predators, they carry a sense of beauty and power. :la:
