SHARKWEEK: Pelagic Thresher by squeedgemonster SHARKWEEK: Pelagic Thresher by squeedgemonster
Shark Week marches on with today's shark, the Pelagic Thresher! Again, this is for ~lexuswolf's Shark Week Sketch Jam.

Dear god, these things are so freakin' cute. They're like... the fennec foxes of the shark world, or something. BIG OL' EYES, teeny li'l face, comically over-sized pectoral fins, and of course, that ridiculous tail. Perfect recipe for d'awwww.

Like many sharks, threshers take a long time to reach sexual maturity, and only produce a couple of pups at a time. Therefore, they are considered vulnerable by the IUCN as the population cannot withstand high levels of exploitation.

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

There's gotta be at least ONE saturday morning special about a pelagic thresher shark being made fun of by the other sharks, only to realize that it was his freakass hilaritude that made him special all along.

once again, I like your style, and Sharks seem to suit it very well, I guess cause sharks are pointy and your style is pointy, it just fits.
and agreed, that shark is cute

It's funny that you say they're like the fennec foxes of the shark world... According to Wikipedia: "The genus and family name derive from the Greek word alopex, meaning fox. Indeed the long-tailed thresher shark, Alopias vulpinus, is named the fox shark by some authorities."

can I ask how you made the very smooth, subtle texture on the shark's skin? VERY NICE BTW!! and yes they definitely are the fennec foxes of the underwater

To get the texture I pasted a metal texture over the drawing and set it to "overlay." Pretty simple, really :3

And thank you!
