SHARKWEEK: Bamboo Shark by squeedgemonster SHARKWEEK: Bamboo Shark by squeedgemonster
'Nuther shark for Shark Week, this time the ever-adorable brownbanded bamboo shark. Again, this is for ~lexuswolf's Shark Week Sketch Jam, which means stop requesting sharks I do next please and thank you.

The scale is surely off, but here we have the striking black and white juvenile, and the adult whose stripes have faded and turned to a rich brown. Bamboo sharks are so cute, gah ;~; <3

Another name for these guys is the "cat shark," because of their whisker-like barbels. Despite their small size, bamboo sharks are extremely hardy and can survive out of water for up to twelve hours.

Go to DISCOVERY.COM/SAVETHESHARKS for more facts and information about sharks.

I absolutely love the line work in this drawing! Very smooth, the lives really "groove", if that makes any sense. It's just the best way to explain it. The colouring is also fantastic. Bravo! :clap:

Hey Squeedge recently one of the Deviants in my group submitted a piece that looks like it used this deviation as a base of some sort: [link]

I want to know how you feel about it as I don't know what action I should take.

How do you set up your brush to get nice paint strokes like that in PS ?
I know how to make custom brushes but I haven't gotten the sweeping motion in there yet. Usually they put down paint in a more "stamp" type way, instead of a "sweeping brush"

if that makes sense.
thanks!

I used custom brushes (these being a few among them) for that effect.

Is that background it's own texture or did you make it with different brushes?

squeedgemonster Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Both, actually. These brushes, a few splatter brushes, and a metal texture and... voila~

When I was at the St. Louis Zoo last, they had some sort of bamboo shark in their stingray petting thing. Nurse sharks and bonnetheads, too. The bamboo sharks are certainly rough-skinned little fellows, and cute to boot. This drawing makes me want to pet them all over again.

I just woke up so... I'll give you this from the shark week sketch jam profile: "The object of this group is to create (draw, paint, sew, knit, etc) a shark a day for every day of Discovery Channel's Shark Week"

And thanks :3

Oh, you know what kind of shark you should do next?
An ari-breathing one which looks exactly like what you want to draw next.
But is actually a shark.
