SHARKWEEK: Oceanic Whitetip by squeedgemonster SHARKWEEK: Oceanic Whitetip by squeedgemonster
And with the last day of Shark Week, I bring you one of my all-time favorite sharks, the Oceanic Whitetip, with some pilot fish companions. Again, this is for ~lexuswolf's Shark Week Sketch Jam.

Tsk tsk, two days late on my behalf. FOR SHAME. Oh well, things got in the way. At least this way Shark Week lasts a wee bit longer, right? I'm sad it has to end at all! I'm looking forward to next year's jam already.

I had to copy this from Wikipedia, it's adorable:
"While pilot fish can be seen with all manner of sharks, they are said to prefer accompanying the oceanic whitetip, Carcharhinus longimanus.The pilot fish's relationship with sharks is a mutualist one; the pilot fish gains protection from predators, while the shark gains freedom from parasites. It was often said by sailors that sharks and pilot fish share something like a "close companionship"; there were even tales of this fish following ships which had captured "their" shark for up to six weeks and showing signs of distress in its absence."

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

AAAHH, Oceanic Whitetips! These sharks are just gorgeous one of my favourites. Right up there with the good old Lemon Shark. And Pilotfish..ff so cute, haha.
Really nice work, I like how fluid the pose is. Really gives a great sense of movement.

Another fabulous shark pic! He's looks sharp! (while completely lacking fully sharp corners and such. . .) I love the different line quality and shape style that you have here that isn't the same as everything else I've seen from you this week. Nicely done.

The differentiation in line thickness is one of the things I admire most in any piece you do, and its REALLY evident in this one.

Top notch as always

perfect end to a perfect series ;D
