Great White Shark: Stage 2

Hello Friends!

Here is Stage 2 of my Great White Shark! I can’t decide if I want to do the background all black or maybe try ocean colors. I’m not real fond of colored pencil even though I have done some colored pencil work. But it is hard on my arm. I suppose it doesn’t have to be super dark. What do you think? Nevertheless, I am not quite done with the shark.Β As you can see, its fins fade out of the picture because it is in deep waters, so I only have a little work left to do on those. And the background will bring out all the light that is supposed to be on the top of the shark. That’s why you can’t see all of it here.

Yesterday I turned in my 8th assignment for my writing class. Today I am starting on the reading for Assignment 9. I have to wait to get my assignment back before I can start on the next one because I have to pick whether to write another article or another fictional story. As much as I like writing fiction, I am leaning towards writing an article about the Leafy Sea Dragon! That was the subject I submitted to her on my article outline. (I have a feeling she may want me to do the same thing.)

Today our daughter left for her first spike in the CCC. She will be gone until next Wednesday. So I have my car back for a week! That means I can drive with A/C and a great stereo! My husband’s truck has neither. It has a stereo, but the speakers are awful. (He knows how I feel so I don’t have to apologize to him. Ha, ha!)

I already have plans for lunch with a friend on Monday. It’s time to make more plans! πŸ˜‰

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! πŸ™‚



About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. The shark looks great and scary, Patsy. I like the idea of an ocean-colored background, but black would make the shark stand out and look more imposing, I think.

    • Thanks, Tiffany. Yes, I was thinking at first of just filling it all in with my darkest graphite pencil, however, I do also have dark blue pencils as well. I may try that this time. But thanks so much for your input! I appreciate it very much. πŸ™‚


  3. Great white sharks are predators who should be given a very wide range to get away fast from them. Jaws was an awesome movie but in real life not at all. I think your picture is coming along really good very authentic looking !! Good luck with the rest of it and waiting for the final product to be posted whether blue or gray waters is fine with me !!

    • Yes, they are predators, but don’t attack humans as much as the horror movie depicts for sure! I love the sleek shape of sharks. There have been some wonderful ones depicted in animated Disney movies!
      Thanks for your input, James. I really appreciate everyone’s opinions. πŸ™‚

      • You might be right about the attacks. Just that there are more people out in the waters which are traditionally theirs. I love Disney animated movies. Thanks for the considerate reply Patsy !


        • That’s just what I’ve learned from reading. And yes, there are more and more people in the oceans. Trashing them is so bad for sea creatures! It’s awful what people have done, huh? Anyway, you’re welcome, James!

          • Yes we as a people have done more harm to the oceans and the creatures who live in them. This also includes the many seas among the world’s oceans

            • I agree, James. It’s very sad to see pictures of sea turtles and other sea creatures with trash on them that they can’t get off by themselves. Or having ingesting stuff they can’t digest and dying a slow painful death. Sorry to sound morbid, but it just breaks my heart.

              • I know it is morbid that we have filled our oceans with garbage. All the cruise ships and ocean going freighters who must be dumping garbage instead of taking it home or the next port with them.

  4. Wow! You did a great job, Patsy! I think a water background sounds nice.

  7. Your shark looks hungry. If I met one in the water, I would not feel any pain as he tore me apart. I would already be dead of a heart attack just at the sight of him.
